Cisco Launches Processor With 4B Transistors On A Single Chip


Cisco unveiled the nPower integrated network processor, calling it the ‘world’s most scalable and programmable network processor’.

The nPower X1, which incorporates over 50 patents, features 400 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) throughput from a single chip, programmable control designed to handle hundreds of millions of unique transactions per second, and comes with 4 billion transistors on a single chip.  

The nPower X1 integrated network processor, the first generation of the nPower processor family, is capable of scaling to multi-terabit performance levels while handling trillions of transactions, says Cisco.
