[Anand] Applied Micro's X-Gene: The First ARMv8 SoC

Quote:
APM's performance estimates put a 3GHz X-Gene at roughly half the integer performance of a 2.4GHz Sandy Bridge. The X-Gene advantage however is the ability to integrate many more cores. APM expects a quad-core X-Gene will be able to perform similarly to a dual-core Sandy Bridge Xeon, but with much lower power consumption.

Smells like competition...

no...wait...that could also be exaggerated slides...

Whichever, I hope for good things from these new processors smile.gif

I wish x86 performance was at that level. Either way, smells great for future iDevices and Andriods.

Considering I can play BF2 smoothly on an i5 2500 GPU could this mean BF2 level graphics on devices within another year or so?

this is what we need to concentrate on. energy efficiency. computers are a (very) small part of our energy consumption, but the fact is that we are using an unsustainable amount of energy.

Still not impressed. Its the same stuff AMD likes to throw at the table; but it is clear as day that right now, parallel computing to the degree that these slides like to show the performance of ARM, real world results are not going to be even remotely close. More cores for server, more single core performance for the average Joe. Until computing takes the same system as the GPU industry....you get the story

However, even thought the wattage per core is great, it won't matter when a single core is only 0.33 that of a sandybridges'.

These are for servers though....

ARM CPUs are getting good enough for "physicalization".... running VMs on dedicated CPUs. Fill a 4U case with a few dozen of these and use thin clients on each desktop. Sun was only 10 years too early.
