August 22, 2014

AppliedMicro, which is making 64-bit ARM processors, will put up to 64 cores in its next X-Gene 3 server chip, said Gaurav Singh, the company’s vice president of engineering and product development, during the Hot Chips conference in Cupertino, California. .

The closest rival to the X-Gene 3 will be Cavium’s ThunderX. The ThunderX is a 48-core ARM server processor and was announced in June.

The X-Gene 3 is a considerable upgrade from the X-Gene 2, which will have up to 16 cores. The X-Gene 3 will be delivered to server manufacturers for evaluation next year.
