New Chip Company

Ampere, a new chip company run by former Intel president
Renee James, came out of stealth today with a brand-new
highly efficient Arm-based server chip targeted at hyperscale
data centers.

The company’s first chip is a custom core Armv8-A 64-bit
server operating at up to 3.3 GHz with 1TB of memory at a
power envelope of 125 watts. Although James was not ready
to share pricing, she promised that the chip would offer
unsurpassed price/performance that would exceed any high
performance computing chip out there.

The company has a couple of other products in the works as
well, which it will unveil in the future
