IBM Power10 CPU will have 2.6x performance per watt and the 7nm CPU will be fabbed by Samsung. It should become available in late 2021. This is another report from Sander Olson.
It will have up to 60/30 cores/socket (240 HW threads) Modular Building Block Die New Core uArch AI-optimized ISA Energy Efficiency Focus HW Enforced Security Enterprise Focus PowerAXON 2.0 PCIe G5 Memory Clustering.
POWER10 Design Focus
Data Plane Bandwidth, Capacity, Composability, Scale
Terabyte/second sockets, Petabyte system memory capacities, 16-socket SMP → Clusters
Powerful Enterprise Core
New Core Architecture, Flexibility, Larger caches, Reduced Latencies
Hardware enabled and co-optimized with PowerVM hypervisor
3x improvement over POWER9
10-20x matrix-math performance / socket compared to POWER9
