The A10 is a fully customized turnkey ASIC designed to meet customer’s requirements on ultra-high memory bandwidth, high performance, high power efficiency calculation application. It aims to compete with the world's highest-performing graphics cards to perform specific encrypted computing tasks.
Developed on 14nm LPP (Low Power) process, A10 has an innovative architecture and consumes low power consumption. It is a highly integrated solution requiring only a few external components and very easy to use and to deploy on a large scale at low cost.
By adjusting the GDDR6 operating clock frequency and/or combined with voltage adjustment, A10 has different operating modes from low power consumption to overclocking. In the low power mode, the computation clock & operational voltage decrease, the total power consumption is down to around 500W per server (18 sets per server). In the turbo mode, the performance is pushed to the limit of around 485MHs per server (18 sets per server) meanwhile the power consumption increases.
It is up to the product manufacturers to decide what speed and power efficiency they design the server for and/or whether it is configurable. According to design, A10 is trend to use as fast as possible for GDDR6 speed, within the limitation of GDDR6 stability under high temperature.
