Qualcomm Company announced the beginning of commercial deliveries of Centriq 2400. These are the world’s first server processors, built on a 10-nm process technology. The new CPUs come for use in data centers. And, according to Qualcomm, they provide exceptional performance, not only per Watt of energy but also per dollar.
Qualcomm begins commercial deliveries Centriq 2400: the first 10-nm server processors
The Centriq 2400 series includes processors on Samsung’s 10-nm process FinFET. That includes up to 48 productive Falkor cores on the ARM v8 architecture. So, each core of the processor has a 64-KB L1 instruction cache paired with the fact that Qualcomm caches L0, at 24 KB.
At the same time, the CPU uses modules combining two cores, which are called Falkor Duplex. Each such module has a standard 512 KB L2 cache. That provides a total cache volume of the second level of 12 MB. As for the L3 cache, it reaches 60 MB.
Centriq 2460, Centriq 2452 and Centriq 2432
The Centriq 2400 uses a 6-channel DDR4 memory controller with a maximum of 768 GB of RAM. The series includes three processors: Centriq 2460, Centriq 2452 and Centriq 2432. They differ from each other by the number of cores and the cache volume of the third level.
In this case, the TDP level of the first two solutions reaches 120 W. And the 40-core Centriq 2432 is limited to 110 W only. But perhaps the even more exciting thing is that Qualcomm is positioning the Centriq 2460 as a competitor to the 205-watt Xeon Platinum 8180, Centriq 2452 to 140-watt Xeon Gold 6152, and Centriq 2434 to 85-watt Xeon Silver 4116.
