Hetzner Offers 80 Core Arm-Based Server
Hetzner has launched new dedicated servers based on Ampere’s Arm-based Cloud Native Processor. It is the first on-demand ARM-based dedicated server in Europe.
The Ampere Altra Q80-30 SoC with Arm-64 architecture has 80 cores of single-threaded processing power. The processor offered high performance and power efficiency during tests for CPU-intensive tasks.
New RX line with 80-Core ARM Architecture
The dedicated server is available in the new RX line and comes in two models.
RX170 - The RX170 is the smaller model with 128 GB DDR4 registered ECC memory modules and 2x 960 GB NVMe SSD.
RX220 - The larger RX220 model offers 256 GB DDR4 registered ECC memory modules and 2 x 3.84 TB NVMe SSD.
Features of the RX line include:
The new servers offer more cores and high performance than other servers at the same price point in the market. It beats the traditional x86_64 CPU hyper-threading core (two threads per core). The RX170 and the RX220 have 80 cores, and each core is single-threaded for high speed.
The RX line is based on Arm64 architecture with a Neoverse N1 design. It is built on the RISC (reduced instruction set computer) principle so the cores can process smaller instructions quickly. It also uses SoC (system-on-chip) to save energy and space and decrease consumption costs.
Hetzner partnered with Ampere in March, a CPU manufacturer specializing in ARM-based compute products. The RX line is suitable for machine learning and AI applications, virtualization, and any use case that requires multiple cores.
You can Install CloudPanel on Hetzner to easily manage the new server from a clean interface. Get more information on Hetzner on the CloudPanel Docs.
