Samsung Electronics, Qualcomm team up to make Centriq 2400

Samsung Electronics, Qualcomm team up to make Centriq 2400”

Qualcomm has announced that commercial shipments of their new Centriq 2400 family of server CPUs, which are made on Samsung's fresh 10nm FinFET process and pack a huge 18 billion transistors into an area of 398 mm². It has now expanded the partnership to server processors. Goal built for cloud, the Qualcomm Centriq 2400 server processor family delivers exceptional performance-per-watt and performance-per dollar. "We have designed the most advanced Arm-based server processor in the world that delivers high performance coupled with the highest energy efficiency, enabling our customers to realize significant cost savings".

Qualcomm is using up to 60MB of shared L3 cache on those cores through a fully-coherent, bi-directional multi-ring interconnect that packs 250GB/sec aggregate bandwidth. A Centriq 2400 series processor can support up to 6 channels of DDR4 memory, up to a max of 768GB of total DRAM capacity, with 32 PCIe Gen3 lanes and 6 PCIe controllers.

Qualcomm adds that the Centriq 2400 is also able to offer a higher performance-per-dollar ratio than the Intel equivalent Skylake hardware, showing its commitment to shaking up the data centre market, which is estimated to be worth $20 billion by 2020.

Qualcomm is targeting the Centriq 2400 series at cloud service providers such as Alibaba, LinkedIn, Cloudflare, Google, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Microsoft Azure, and Samsung. For example, a Google exec said that he welcomed the arrival of the Centriq 2400 processors, describing the 64-bit Armv8-A architecture and ecosystem as "now a viable alternative for scale-out data centre designs".

Optimized for common cloud workloads, the Qualcomm Centriq 2400 processor family has been created to deliver throughput performance for highly threaded cloud native applications that are developed as micro-services and deployed for scale-out. "We welcome choice in the processor design space for data centers".

Inside, Qualcomm's new Centriq CPUs have up to 48 single-thread 64-bit ARM v8-compliant cores, a custom design that Qualcomm has dubbed Falkor. This marks a big step for Qualcomm, which is no stranger to the mobile market with its Snapdragon processors, but is a lesser known quantity in the server market.
