Avoton out next week

Written by Nick Farrell

Headed for a moonshot

Intel is to announce next week the launch of its low-power Atom chip code-named Avoton which will expected be used in HP’s Moonshot microservers.

Manufactured on 22nm technology, these processors will have up to 8 cores, up to 4 MB of L2 cache, and integrate DDR3 memory controller along with PCI Express 2.0 and several other common interfaces. They will come with Silvermont architecture with significantly improved CPU performance, new SSE4 and AES instructions, and a number of added power management features.

It is expected that there will be five "Avoton" SKUs: C2350, C2530, C2550, C2730, and C2750. "Avoton" products were supposed to have from two to eight cores. |The C2350 could be a dual-core part, the C2530 and C2550 could have four CPU cores, and the C2730 and C2750 might have eight.
