Qualcomm Outs Centriq 2400 Specs

Last week Qualcomm gave us some numbers regarding their new Centriq 2400 line of CPUs. They are better than expected. Quite a bit better in fact. The fact is that the new chips are better than some of the Intel competition when it comes to server CPUs. Qualcomm makes processors for most every smartphone and they have manufacturing plants that help them make things super cheap. The pressure is on right now from both AMD and Qualcomm. Intel is going to have their work cut out for them.

Now we start getting to the good stuff, performance. We will note that this is against the Xeon 8160 not the top line 8180, in order to make the thread count the same, 48 vs 48. In this case Qualcomm wins by a bit, 7%. To save you the math, 56/48 = 1.1667 or ~17% higher performance. Since the 8180 has a 2.5GHz base clock vs the 2.7GHz of the 8160, the bigger 8180 should come in at 662 or roughly 1% better than the Centriq 2400.
