Fujitsu has unveiled a single-socket server rack that targets data centres owned by Internet Service Providers.
The new server rack will be packed with a 2nd-gen AMD Epyc 7002 processor with up to 64 ‘Zen 2’ cores per chip. Zen 2 is AMD’s latest chip microarchitecture, fabricated on the 7-nanometer node.
“We are pleased to strengthen the business relationship with AMD with the new Fujitsu server PRIMERGY LX1430 M1 based on the 2nd Gen AMD Epyc processor. This joint collaboration will accelerate to deploy AMD Epyc based systems to help customers achieve digital transformation and innovate their businesses,” said Kenichi Sakai, corporate executive officer, SVP, head of system platform business unit.
Amazon is readying a new data centre processor that is 20 percent more powerful than its predecessor, Reuters reports.
Like Amazon’s first chip, Graviton, the revamped processor will be based on Arm architecture. Amazon is reportedly ditching Arm’s older Cortex A72 technology in favour of the company’s updated Neoverse N1 tech, and the chip is expected to have 32 cores compared to Graviton’s 16.
Researchers have developed an improved atomic storage manufacturing process that could finally make ultra-efficient, high-density storage solutions a reality.
Ultra-high density storage devices have been around for a while and typically rely on single molecules or atoms to store bits of information.
Intel has finally unveiled the company’s long-awaited GPU processor architecture, designed to tackle the onslaught of large data and AI workloads entering the data centre.
At AI Supercomputing 2019, taking place in Denver, the chipmaker debuted its new Ponte Vecchio GPUs, which will compete with existing offerings served up by Nvidia and AMD.
Although the accelerators will initially target the data centre market, Intel said the new architecture will eventually form the basis of its consumer chips. The data centre acceleration marketed is expected to be worth $35 billion by the end of 2025, according to Market Study Report.
Apple all set to build integrated processors and modems of its own Apple is to acquire chipmaker Intel’s smartphone modem division for 1 billion US dollars (£803 million). The agreement comes three months after Apple ended a long-running dispute with one of Intel’s rivals, Qualcomm, to ensure it would have a pipeline of chips it… Read More
