Although arm architecture processor is not successful in entering the PC desktop market, it has made great achievements in the fields of cloud computing, edge computing and high-performance computing, with rich products and wide applications, which has posed a great threat to x86.Recently, Amazon released 64 core graviton2, amber launched 80 core Altra, and Marvell (Meiman Electronics) now brings a new generation of thunderx3.

Marvell ThunderX series has gone through two generations and promised to upgrade every two years. The 2018 ThunderX2 was made using TSMC's 16 nm process, with a maximum of 32 cores and a self-developed four-launch, disorderly execution ARM v8.1 architecture, with a maximum of four threads per core, a total of 128 threads, running at a frequency of 2.5 GHz..

Later this year, Marvell will release the third-generation thunderx3 and the fourth-generation thunderx4 in 2024.

The core frequency is not mentioned, but the thermal design power consumption range is 100-240w.

I / O supportEight channel ddr4-3200, similar to AMD second generation Xiaolong and Intel next generation Zhiqiang, and64 PCIe 4.0, half of AMD's second generation Xiaolong.

Marvell's official claim,The performance of thunderx3 IPC is more than 25% higher than that of the previous generation, the performance of single thread is more than 60% (which means that the frequency will be greatly improved), the overall performance of platform level is improved by up to three times, and the floating-point performance can be increased by more than five times thanks to the new SIMD unit.

The ecological support of Marvell thunderx family has been quite prosperous. The official claim that the most widely deployed arm server processor has been adopted by 20 customers, and even entered the supercomputer for the first time.

In the face of X86, Marvell is confident, especially emphasizing that Intel has lost its leading position due to its inability to add more cores due to technology constraints, while amd has problems of high memory latency and insufficient bandwidth,Our own thunderx series has many advantages: server optimization and customization core, excellent energy efficiency, optimal single thread performance / platform performance / memory delay / memory bandwidth, ecological readiness.
