Recently, Tilera introduced the TILE-Gx72 processor with four high-performance DDR3 memory controllers to lead the coming generation of multimedia, network, and cloud infrastructure. The TILE-Gx72 also comes with 72 power-efficient cores coupled with massive I/O.
Mobile networks and the amount of real-time video and data content are growing at a steady rate, and Tilera’s customers are constructing the infrastructure for tomorrows hyper-connected. The rapid pace at which new features are being added and complex services being offered, calls for a software based model with standards-based, familiar programming tools. On top of this, dramatically higher levels of scalability and performance are being demanded of processor suppliers by OEMs.
Devesh Garg, president and CEO of Tilera said, “The TILE-Gx72 rounds out our processor portfolio, complementing our 9, 16, and 36-core TILE Gx processors and is offering a remarkable range of processing performance. Customers demand ever-increasing levels of performance and performance-per-watt to stay competitive and they simultaneously want to reuse their software and hardware investments across their product portfolio. The TILE-Gx72 brings an unprecedented amount of compute to customer designs, and leverages thousands of open source libraries and the growing Linux ecosystem.”
The I/O intensive and compute applications for which the TILE-Gx72 is suited include L2-7 networking and firewall appliances, Layer 7 Deep Packet Inspection at over 50 Gbps, HD video conferencing, and high throughput SDN computing, among others.
Ofer Raz, the head of platforms and architecture of Check Point Software (News - Alert) Technologies said, “We continue to be impressed with the scalability of the TILE-Gx family with its seamless software compatibility from 9 cores to 72 cores. The TILE-Gx72 processor brings the right mix of compute, low-latency I/O, memory bandwidth, and accelerators for the needs of our intelligent, integrated security appliances.”
