AMD's SeaMicro servers have AMD and Intel processor options. There is more information in our press release: http://www.amd.com/us/press-releases/Pages/verizon-selects-amd-2013oct7.aspx.

Young-Sae,

Congratulations. What processors will the servers to verizon ship with. Also what was the key capability that verizon could not get with standard servers?

 

Cheers,

Yes, it is a big design win, and the reason this is news is because AMD's SeaMicro server is being used to deliver a next generation enterprise cloud with capabilities no other public cloud provider offers.  Verizon decided to collaborate with AMD because they could not do this with off the shelf servers.  This is a result of over two years of R&D by AMD and Verizon.  As for price, a standard SeaMicro SM15000 server starts at around $139,000.

The news is the big design win with Verizon for a version of the Sea Micro server AMD announced last year, a possible proof point they may have some unique virtualization capabilities.

As for the price, I don't know. Over to you, AMD.

Seamicro has been shipping for years now (apparently). I am not sure why this is news unless this is using ARM based CPUs.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
