AppliedMicro Revitalizes The Cloud With World’s First 64-bit ARM Architecture Compliant Processor Converging Compute Performance With Power Efficiency

Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ:AMCC), or AppliedMicro, today announced “X-Gene™,” the world’s first 64-bit ARM architecture compliant processor for next-generation cloud computing, wireless infrastructure, enterprise networking, storage and security applications. X-Gene multi-core processors based on high-performance ARMv8 compliant cores operating at up to 3.0 GHz will offer compelling performance at a fraction of the power and cost of existing solutions. With unparalleled single-thread performance, full CPU and I/O virtualization, and System-on-a-Chip (SoC) enabled glueless multi-processing, X-Gene will enable AppliedMicro to define the next generation of cloud computing.

Today’s multi-billion dollar cloud computing server landscape is dominated by systems that have a fundamental imbalance between the compute, memory, storage and networking components. Driven by the relentless pursuit for the utmost CPU performance, these imbalanced components are both power hungry and costly. AppliedMicro’s solution changes this paradigm by optimizing the system with a simpler, more elegant approach to reduce server cost, power and complexity by more than 50 percent. The new processors from AppliedMicro will implement the ARMv8 architecture, which includes the new ARM 64-bit instruction set, to deliver the world’s first “server-on-a-chip” integrating compute, networking and server elements into a single footprint.

“The current growth trajectory of data centers, driven by the viral explosion of social media and cloud computing applications, will continue to accelerate,” said Dr. Paramesh Gopi, President and CEO of AppliedMicro. “In offering the world’s first 64-bit ARM architecture processor, we harmonize the network with cloud computing and environmental responsibility. Our next-generation of multicore SoCs will bring in a new era of energy efficient performance that doesn’t break the bank on a limited power supply. In doing so, AppliedMicro becomes a more complete cloud computing technology provider for one of the hottest growth drivers in the industry.”

“Collectively, data centers around the world consume nearly 1.5 percent of total electricity production and almost $44.5 billion a year is spent on powering the servers in these data centers,” said Linley Gwennap, principal analyst from Linley Group. “Looking at the growth projections for data center usage and the future of power generation growth, this trajectory is unsustainable. A new paradigm for developing data centers based on energy efficiency will certainly help make data centers scale realistically with future demand growth.”
