MiTAC Announces 7-Star 64-Bit ARM Server Powered by Applied Micro X-Gene Server-on-Chip

After unveiling their GFX servers based on Marvell ARM Cortex A9 SoC at Computex 2012, Mitac announced their new 7-Star server at Computex 2013. This new server is based on Applied Micro X-Gene SoC featuring ARMv8 architecture, and is one of the first, if not the first, 64-Bit ARM server ever.

Mitac 7-Star ARMv8 ServerThe key features of Mitac Server are as follows:

  • 18x Front-loaded Computing Blades in 4U (176mm x 440mm x 650mm)
  • Server Blade Spec
    • SSI uModule v1.0 complaint
    • (1) ARMv8 compliant 64-bit SoC /blade
    • (2) DDR3 DIMM slots, and (2) 2.5” SATA 3.0 HDD support
    • (1) 10G SFP+ and (1) GbE port
    • IPMI V2.0 compliant
  • Pass-through Ethernet Module
  • Chassis Management
  • Hot-swap FAN and (2+1) RPSU support

It will be available by the end of the year. That’s about all I know for now, but more information should eventually come up on Mitac 7-Star page.

Nice, how many points matches in antutu? 😀 I am jokering. Great News, its a big step to get a Personal computer based on ARM.

Whilst the initial arm-64 stuff is clearly for servers, if they are viable and competitive it is only a matter of time before they go beyond that.

AMD finally realising that hitching themselves to the wintel train isn’t a long-term strategy can’t hurt either. It will certainly be interesting to see their take on the ARM-64 cpu’s when they come out.

With a certainty – the highly competitive and wide-open environment from all the ARM licensees is only going to benefit the end consumer.

No, this is not an A57. Applied Micro have a v8 architecture license.
