Takeaway

  • POWER9 systems have an estimated 2x the performance per core of Intel chip-based systems for most data-oriented workloads.
  • The POWER9 chip is the first with PCI-Express 4.0 (PCIe Gen4) I/O adapters and infrastructure, which deliver 2x the I/O bandwidth of PCIe Gen3.
  • Greater cache, memory and I/O bandwidths are industry leading innovations over x86 technologies.
