X-Gene 3 Processor Underscores Readiness for Next-Generation Data Centers
The third-generation design features microarchitecture improvements, making it the most powerful ARM CPU available today. It features 32 ARMv8-A 64-bit cores operating at speeds up to 3.0 GHz, eight DDR4-2667 memory channels with ECC and RAS supporting up to 16 DIMMs and addressing up to 1TB of memory and 42 PCIe Gen 3 lanes with eight controllers. The processor is expected to have a performance that is up to six times that of the currently shipping X-Gene family of products.
To assist customers, MACOM has developed reference platforms for X-Gene 3 that support the full memory capacity, as well as several PCIe and SATA ports, other standard I/O and an AST2500 board-management controller (BMC) for platform management. The reference platform ships with the AMI AptioV UEFI BIOS and the industry standard CentOS server operating system.
"We are excited to announce that the X-Gene 3 performance and power
measurements are exceeding our expectations," said
"With two products in production and a third on the way, X-Gene has
already built a strong ecosystem that competitors have yet to match,"
"We're seeing unprecedented demand for the X-Gene 3 evaluation platforms
from our customers in all geographies and welcome the opportunity to
sample it to them to allow for further evaluation of the technology,"
X-Gene 3 is now shipping to select customers. For more information,
