Ampere Computing introduces new AmpereOne processor family with 192 custom cores

CEO Renee James urges the industry to embrace sustainable, efficient computing solutions as performance demands in the cloud continue to grow

SANTA CLARA, California, May 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Ampere® Computing today announced a new AmpereOne™ processor family with up to 192 single-threaded Ampere cores – the highest core count in the industry. This is Ampere’s first product based on the company’s new bespoke core, built from the ground up and leveraging the company’s internal IP.

CEO Renée James, who founded Ampere Computing to offer the industry a modern alternative with processors specifically designed for efficiency and performance in the cloud, said there was a fundamental shift that required a new approach.

“Every few decades of computing, a driving application or power usage has emerged that sets a new benchmark for performance requirements,” James said. “The current driving uses are AI and connected everything, combined with our continued usage and desire for streaming media. We cannot continue to use electricity as a proxy for data center performance. At Ampere, we design our products to maximize performance in a sustainable way. Energy so we can continue to drive the future of the industry.

Ampere, which created the Cloud Native Processor category with its Ampere® Altra® and Ampere® Altra® Max processors, has remained intensely focused on fulfilling its commitment to deliver a predictable and rapid cadence of products that are market leaders in terms of performance and efficiency. Today, the company introduced its latest family of Ampere Core-based products, AmpereOne, to push efficient, high-performance computing further than before.

With AmpereOne, the company is expanding its portfolio and at the same time ensuring further increases in performance, scalability and efficiency. Ampere® Altra® and Ampere® Altra® Max will continue to serve the cloud and other key segments that require the highest performance at the lowest power consumption.

“AmpereOne is about more. More cores, more IO, more memory, more performance, more cloud capabilities,” said Jeff Wittich, Ampere’s chief product officer. “With our Ampere Custom Cloud Native Cores, this is the next step in moving away from the limitations of legacy computing. No other CPU comes close. It’s about cloud scaling with maximum performance per rack.”

AmpereOne was built from the ground up with 192 custom-engineered Ampere cores, large cloud-optimized private caches, and new cloud features aimed at fast-growing cloud usages like AI. These features, such as mesh congestion management, fine grained power management, and memory tagging, also improve performance consistency, manageability, and security for high-performance, heavily used, multi-user environments like the cloud. The entire platform scales with the addition of eight channels of DDR5 memory and 128 lanes of PCIe Gen5 IO. The processor is manufactured on the 5nm process node.

“The result of all this innovation is the industry’s most efficient and high-performing core for cloud workloads,” said Wittich.

“AmpereOne offers Ampere customers the highest overall performance, scalability, and density for cloud-native workloads,” he said, adding that Ampere’s cloud-native processors deliver a performance advantage of more than Offer twice the performance of competing CPUs for AI inference.*

With the addition of the AmpereOne family, Ampere expands its product portfolio to cover all cloud-native computing needs – from the lowest performance and most limitations to the biggest customer demands. Confidence in this product portfolio is evident in Ampere’s growing customer base, which includes leading CSPs such as Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, Alibaba and Tencent, as well as leading OEMs such as HPE and Supermicro.

James said there is a fundamental architectural shift that makes more power with greater efficiency the new imperative.

“It is time for us as an industry to face the situation and embrace change. Our future growth as an industry depends on it,” she said. “The cloud has opened up a whole new world and approach to software development. Isn’t it about time the microprocessor did the same?”

The need for this architectural change is fueled by the exponential growth in computing power, she said, which has led to competition for energy resources between data centers and key commercial and residential projects. “Sustainability is no longer just a part of ESG efforts – it’s critical to all future growth in computing.”
