Qualcomm has announced that they are started commercial sampling of the world’s first 48-core SoC on the 10nm node, with ARM-based Falkor 10nm CPU used in the upcoming chip family ‘Centriq 2400.
Senior VP and GM of Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies, Inc. Anand Chandrasekher, explains: “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 datacenter“.
So far we don’t know any technical specifications or performance of this new Centriq 2400 series processors, so we don’t know which CPU it will compete with. We are aware it will be targeted towards server market.
