Hewlett-Packard on Monday said that its forthcoming hyper-scale servers will be based on Texas Instruments’ KeyStone II system-on-chip based on ARM Cortex-A15 cores. HP will continue to partner with other chip designers, including Calxeda, in order to provide future customers a choice between different chips.

TI recently announced its new product series based on the KeyStone II architecture that enables “a better way to cloud” for applications in high performance computing, gaming and media processing. TI’s KeyStone II system-on-chip (SoC) family, including the K2H and K2E devices, provides industries first implementation of quad ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore processors in an infrastructure-class embedded SoC.  This unique SoC creates an unmatched combination of Cortex-A15 processors, C66x DSPs, packet processing and Ethernet switching.

Specifically, TI’s 66AK2Hx family and its integrated c66x multicore DSPs are applicable for workloads ranging from high performance computing, media processing, video conferencing, off-line image processing & analytics, video recorders (DVR/NVR), gaming, virtual desktop infrastructure and medical imaging.

With the Moonshot architecture, HP has created an innovative platform architecture that enables Texas Instruments, and other Pathfinder partners, to develop workload-optimized hardware and software solutions. Coupling TI’s new KeyStone II architecture with HP Moonshot enables large-scale, concurrent real-time processing of cloud and traditional telecommunications workloads by one integrated system optimized for high performance, power-efficient processing. We are thrilled to be collaborating with Texas Instruments to bring this unique solution to our customers.

"While it is too soon to disclose any product plans, we are excited to welcome Texas Instruments into the Pathfinder Partner Program and look forward to ongoing technology collaboration to bring the KeyStone II SoC family into Moonshot platforms," said Tim Wesselman, senior director of ecosystem strategy at HP HyperScale business unit.
