Representing the high end of all ARM processors, X-Gene™ delivers CPU performance that allows for immediate deployment in today’s cloud with today’s expected performance levels.
Fully integrated SoC, eliminating the need for other discrete chips including I/O controller hub, NIC, baseboard management controller.
Enterprise class, including ECC (error-correcting code), RAS (reliability, availability and serviceability). Any server running mission-critical applications requires ECC and RAS.
Malleable offload engines support SDN (software-defined networking), security or other user-defined applications.
High-density, low TCO (total cost of ownership). 4x the density and 50% less power while delivering comparable-to-better overall performance.
AppliedMicro acquired the first architectural license for the ARM® v8 64-bit architecture in 2010. AppliedMicro helped to complete the ARMv8 64-bit spec and wrote more than 20,000 instruction set verification tests. These tests will be used to certify and test ARMv8 64-bit cores from all manufacturers.
X-Gene features the semiconductor industry’s first Server-on-a-Chip solution, combining 10/40G mixed signal I/O with top-of-class, ARMv8 64-bit cores developed by AppliedMicro running at up to 2.4 Ghz, with an enterprise-class memory subsystem.
X-Gene combines full SR-IOV semantics with packet networking functionality on a single die for rack scale and sled scale networking.
X-Gene platforms and hardware have been used over the past 2 years by leading OS and applications vendors to develop enterprise-grade Open Source software that is expected to ship with leading server OEMs.
Hypervisors for ARMv8 64-bit devices are exclusively ported to X-Gene.
