Qualcomm Centriq 2400 – ARM 10nm server processors
  • The Qualcomm Centriq 2400 processor, based on the Qualcomm Falkor CPU, QDT’s own Armv8-based custom CPU core design, delivers leading-edge aggregate performance, as shown by SPECint_rate20062 score estimates. These scores are based on the open source gcc compiler, using -O2 flags, consistent with how cloud developers compile their own code.

    The Qualcomm Centriq 2400 delivers better performance per watt than competing x86 server processors4. We’ve taken a typical Qualcomm Centriq 2460 processor and run SPECint_rate2006, measuring the average power for each sub-test. All tests ran at the full 2.6 GHz peak frequency. As a first-order view, the average (both mean and median) power of those measurements was 65W. Running the same test on an Intel Xeon Platinum 8176, which has similar SPECint_rate2006 performance when compiled with gcc -O2, the power we measured was significantly higher — running at 100% of its 165W thermal design power (TDP) and burning over 2.5x as much electricity for similar performance!

    The Qualcomm Centriq 2400 processor delivers a phenomenal performance-per-dollar. With a list price5 of $1,995, the 48-core Qualcomm Centriq 2460 processor delivers 4X better performance-per-dollar versus Intel’s highest-performance Skylake processor, the Intel Xeon Platinum 8180. With a list price of $1373, the 46-core Qualcomm Centriq 2452 processor offers 3X better performance-per-dollar versus Intel Xeon Gold 6152. And, with a list price of $888, the 40-core Qualcomm Centriq 2434 processor offers 2X better performance-per-dollar versus Intel Xeon Silver 41166.
