Chinese chip designer Phytium Technology today unveiled the Tengyun S2500, the next generation of highly scalable multi-server chip.
The chip inherits the superior performance of its predecessor, the FT-2000+, while adding four direct connections for a total bandwidth of 800Gbps.
It can form a 128- to 512-core computer system, the company said.
Phytium's eco-partners have started the development of servers based on the Tengyun S2500, which is expected to be available for mass production in the fourth quarter of this year.
Tengyun S2500 key specifications:
Based on 16nm process
Main frequency 2.0~2.2Ghz
64 FTC663 cores
Extended support for 2-way to 8-way direct connection
Integrated 64MB Level 3 Cache
8 DDR4-3200 memory channels
Power consumption is 150W
According to Phytium's test data, in terms of overall performance, the dual-channel SPECint score is 1000+, increasing to twice the original score.
Tengyun S2500 continues Phytium's high-end chips before the on-chip parallel system-on-chip (PSoC) architecture, data-friendly massively coherent storage architecture, hierarchical two-dimensional Mesh interconnect network of the three advantages of the structure.
It adds high-capacity shared L3 Cache, multi-port high-speed low-latency direct paths, and enhanced reliability for memory-mirrored storage.
Phytium also announced its future CPU roadmap, with the embedded Tenglong E-series next in line for 14nm.
The Tengrui D series of desktop CPUs will be available in 14nm by the end of this year with the Tengrui D2000, and by the end of next year with the Tengrui D3000 series, which doubles the performance of a single core.
As for the Tengyun S series in the server space, the next-generation Tengyun S5000 series will be upgraded to 7nm and will come out in Q3 2021.
In 2022 it will release the 5nm Tengyun S6000 series, doubling the overall performance.
