A Modern Semiconductor Company
Delivering the First Cloud Native Processors, Built for the Sustainable Cloud
Ampere has designed the industry’s first Cloud Native Processors, uniquely delivering the performance, scalability, security, and power efficiency that is focused on today’s hyperscale cloud and edge computing workloads and applications.
The company has launched the industry’s first two Cloud Native Processors — the ARM-based 80-core Ampere® Altra® and the 128-core Ampere® Altra® Max. Delivering the highest total performance and performance per watt of power, these two products deliver a sustainable server solution for data center applications, enabling cloud service providers to meet the compute demands of the future with only a fraction of the power and real estate consumed today.
With an experienced technical team and a superior design methodology, Ampere is laser focused on innovating cloud technology. Its goal is to bring a new standard to the market — a market where highly-scalable processing capability and reduced power consumption can translate into hundreds of millions of dollars in profits and savings to customers. By providing a new level of predictable performance and efficiency, Ampere is working to deliver Cloud Native Processors that can handle the compute demands of today and tomorrow.
Predictable High Performance
Increase compute capacity and decrease the number of racks required in the data center. Realize the greatest performance per rack, per watt, and per dollar in the industry.
Achieve high utilization and consistent performance under maximum loads with the most single-threaded cores—eliminating the noisy neighbor effect of multi-threaded cores.
Cut the cost of your data center operations in half by reducing energy consumption and real estate requirements, optimizing rack space, and lowering your carbon footprint.
Ampere’s processors are optimized for AI CPU inference workloads, delivering higher performance than x86 for Vision, NLP, Recommender Engines, Machine learning, and any other AI applications.
