This solution targets high performance volume servers deployed by Public/Private Cloud and Telco data centers. It is optimized for key Data Center workloads including compute, security, storage, and distributed databases. GIGABYTE says that the ThunderX servers deliver comparable performance at a more compelling TCO than traditional x86 server systems.
The solution adopts a dual-socket ARM SoC architecture that scales up to 48 cores per processor with up to 2.0 GHz core frequency. It offers up to 160Gb of I/O bandwidth and four DDR4 72 bit memory controllers capable of supporting up to 1TB of memory in a dual socket configuration at 2133MHz.
