Momentum builds for X-Gene - Now, in high-performance computing

AppliedMicro Can Improve On Big Data Workloads With Upcoming Gen 2 Features

Two key points we are always making to folks we advise are to first, don’t make the mistake thinking ARM-based server SoC’s are like smartphone’s just because they use the same instruction set and two, think beyond the SoC – server architecture is a really big deal. This is certainly the case with new features in Applied Micro Circuit’s X-Gene2 server architecture combined with X-Weave.
