Qualcomm Centriq 2400, 48-core Processor On 10nm Process Teased
Qualcomm Centriq 2400 is the first of its kind, 48-core CPU based on the 10nm process. As of right now we have nothing in terms of specs or performance but one thing is for sure, Qualcomm just beat Intel in the race of making a 48-core processor and that is something not everyone can say.
According to Senior VP and GM of Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies, Inc. Anand Chandrasekher:
“The Qualcomm Centriq 2400 series processors will drive high performance, power-efficient ARM-based servers from concept to reality. Qualcomm requires the leading edge of integrated circuit technology to deliver high performance at low power for the newest premium smartphones. We are first in 10nm IC technology for mobile, and leveraging our expertise in ARM processors and system on chip design, we are the first with our Qualcomm Centriq family of server processors to bring the leading edge to the data center”
Qualcomm Centriq 2400 uses the new Falkor 10nm CPU, this has been designed by the company from scratch. Qualcomm Centriq 2400 will be used in servers and will most likely not be coming out for the average consumer.
There is no news regarding the pricing of the CPU but looking at how it has 48-cores it is safe to say that it will be pretty expensive. Plus it will be aimed at the server market which is not cheap at all.
Intel may not be threatened by AMD Zen that is also coming out next year but I have to say that it will be hard to justify why this is not a threat to the company. I for one would be interested in hearing what Intel has to say about the Qualcomm Centriq 2400. But that is yet to come.
Qualcomm Centriq 2400 is something that we will be looking out for on 2017. What do you think about the Qualcomm Centriq 2400?
