Ampere to accelerate hyperscale cloud computing innovations

Ampere was launched to address memory performance, cost, space and power constraints for emerging hyperscale cloud applications and next-generation data centers, the company said.

Ampere was born in and built for private and public clouds and delivers customers reliable 64-bit Arm® server processors with high memory performance and substantially lower power and total cost of ownership (TCO). The company is backed by The Carlyle Group.

Ampere processors offer a modern architecture with a unique, high performance, custom core Armv8-A 64-bit server operating at up to 3.3 GHz, 1TB of memory at a power envelope of 125 watts. The processors are sampling now and will be in production in the second half of the year.
