Amazon’s cloud hosting business, Amazon Web Services, will soon be getting new server hardware – an updated processor explicitly intended for data centers, as detailed by Reuters.
A year ago, Amazon reported the launch of its ARM-based processor called Graviton which was improved for performance and cost. As per a source who addressed Reuters, the new processors are at least 20 percent quicker than this first-generation ARM chip.
The innovation for the chips originates from ARM Holdings, a British organization that is expecting to take on the market dominance of Intel and AMD. At a certain point, Intel had a close monopoly with 99 percent market share of server chips, yet in recent years ARM has built up itself as a serious contender in the server space.
The new Amazon chip hasn’t been authoritatively declared at this point, yet it is required to utilize ARM’s Neoverse N1 innovation and to have at any rate 32 centers, twice the same number as the past ARM chip.
