2017年英特尔正式发布新一代Atom®处理器C3000系列。C3000基于14nm工艺制造，首次支持16核并行计算，并提供6到20条高速IO通道，支持128GB到256GB的DDR4 ECC内存、单或双通道DDR4内存控制器等，提供4×10 Gigabit 以太网连接，以及Quick Assist 加密加速技术；16核版本最高功耗也才32W，能够为网络设备或者物联网设备提供更加强大的运算能力。
Intel's Newest Intel Atom® processor-based Data Center Platform Extends Reach of the Intelligent Network。
Today, we are excited to extend intelligent cryptographic processing and data compression to the farthest edge of the network with the launch of our Intel Atom® C3000 platform. Designed for low power, efficient intelligence and scalability for a variety of network and storage workloads, the new Intel Atom C3000 platform is a purpose-built offering for the unique edge requirements of small physical size, very low power, and extreme temperature range.
Extends Intelligence to the Network Edge
The introduction of Intel Atom C3000 processors enables the product and solution providers driving network transformation to deliver lower power platforms for workloads such as entry level routers, network appliances like firewalls and VPNs. Moreover, for customer environments such as branch offices, Communications Service Providers can tap into hardware-enhanced Network Function Virtualization (NFV) efficiencies with new Micro Universal Customer Premise Equipment (uCPE) offerings. This agility to centralize and remotely control uCPE systems via their Software Defined WAN access, can achieve faster and easier service deployment and enhanced levels of ongoing serviceability.
In February of this year, ZTE and Huawei announced product designs aimed at networking usages while Gigabyte announced upcoming products designs aimed at storage usages. Today, we’re announcing additional new and refreshed designs from more than 30 partners including A10 Networks, Aaeon Technology, Accton Technology Corporation, ADI Engineering, Advantech, Aewin Technologies, Axiomtex, Caswell, China Unicom, Cisco Systems, Citrix Systems, Congatec, Dell EMC, DFI, Ennoconn Corporation, H3C, HuachenTel, IBASE Technology, Juniper Networks, Kontron, Lanner Electronics, Netgear, Nexcom International, NTTi3, Portwell, QNAP Systems, Quanmax, Silicom, Supermicro Computer, Synology, Unicom Engineering and Versa. With these design and many more under development, the combined power of Intel platforms, ecosystem partnerships, and performance engineering come together to deliver a scalable portfolio of solutions to accelerate digital transformation from the heart of the data center to the network edge.
