OCTEON TX2 Infrastructure processors, the only Arm-based SoC family that scales up to 36 cores, utilize custom designed 64-bit Armv8.2 cores and incorporate security and packet processing accelerators, comprehensive hardware virtualization support, and up to 56 lanes of 25Gbps SerDes. Both SPECInt and Coremark benchmarks have doubled compare to the previous generation. In addition, the new packet processing engine delivers a higher throughput with header processing, QoS, and traffic shaping. Enabled by a mature and widely deployed SDK, OCTEON TX2 is supported by robust software ecosystems consisting of both open source and commercial offerings.
Industry Leading Security
