Amazon announced that it had designed a more powerful data center processor chip. The AWS Graviton2 processor is estimated to be 7X faster than the previous chip.
Amazon is looking forward to limiting its reliance on Intel Corp and AMD and stands for a challenge to the domination of market leaders. Currently, Intel controls more than 90% of the server processor market, and AMD controlling most of the rest.
As per Reuters last week, Amazon was looking to design a data center processor chip to power its cloud unit.
