Dylan Martin

These semiconductor startups are, in some cases, competing with heavyweights like Intel and AMD or creating complementary hardware, such as storage accelerators or data processing units, that can improve system performance or even shake up the economics of data centers.

Ampere Computing

CEO: Renee James

Founded and led by former Intel executive Renee James, Ampere Computing is building Arm-based server CPUs with a focus on high-performance, power efficiency and total cost of ownership.

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based startup revealed two processors this year: the 80-core Ampere Altra, which the company pitched as the “first cloud-native CPU for modern cloud and edge computing data centers,” and the 128-core Ampere Altra Max, which provides the “industry’s highest socket-level performance and I/O scalability.”

More recently, Oracle, which has invested $40 million in Ampere, announced that it will launch cloud instances based on 80-core Ampere Altra processors.
