Alibaba Cloud announced a 128-core server processor last October. The company is now launching a new cloud server powered by its Yitian 710 SoC. started to offer. It looks like the processor designed by Alibaba’s T-Head subsidiary is now ready to power Alibaba’s cloud servers.
On the other hand, different companies will have the opportunity to try the processor developed by T-Head with an invitation. At this point, it was stated that the number of Yitian-supported samples was extremely limited.
Alibaba’s T-Head Yitian 710 server chip houses 128 Armv9 cores running at 3.20 GHz. The processor is accompanied by eight DDR5-4800 memory channels capable of delivering up to 307.2GBps of bandwidth and 96 PCIe 5.0 lanes for high-performance storage solutions. The new SoCs are manufactured using the 5nm process and consist of 60 billion transistors.
Alibaba only has 100 samples exclusively for selected customers for some reason. A very limited number of servers running the Yitian 710 server processor must have been prepared, with only 100 samples. Also, not all 128 cores of the processors used for these servers are enabled.
The company did not give any dates for these chips and Panjiu servers to reach a wide audience. But it’s clear that Alibaba Cloud is serious about developing its own server chips for cloud services. The main question is the competitiveness of these SoCs, the efficiency and performance offered.
