Electronics Processor Product Number : SPARC64 VIIProcessor
High performance 4 cores per CPU chip Using multi-core and multi-thread per core technology
SPARC64 VI/VII/VII+ enhances the high performance and high reliability features of SPARC64 V and further boosts performance using multi-core and multi-thread per core technology imbedded on a single CPU chip. SPARC64 VII/VII+ has 4 cores per CPU chip, SPARC64 VI has 2 cores per CPU chip. Plus, SPARC64 VII+ reduces data access time by doubling level2 cache. The multi-core, multi thread per core, and large on chip cache memory provides a significant boost over single chip performance. Multi-threading technology minimizes CPU core wait times and increases CPU core utilization. In SPARC64 VII/VII+, SMT (Simultaneous Multithreading) enables two threads running in parallel. In SPARC64 VI, VMT(Vertical Multithreading) enables efficient thread execution. A large level2 cache memory seriously shrinks memory latency. SPARC64 high performance technologies such as super scalar, Out-of-Order execution, branch prediction and non-blocking cache are maintained. SPARC Enterprise with high-performance SPARC64 VI/VII/VII+ chips provides supreme performance across a wide range of applications including large-scale transaction processing.
