Ampere revealed its plans to design its own processor cores last year as a means to supple a more attuned product to hyperscalers’ needs. Ampere recently stated its first in-house cloud native processor core designs will be named the AmpereOne.

Instead of having to rely on Arm for its reference designs, AmpereOne is a first for Ampere, as a fully self-designed core. The AmpereOne is a 5nm TSMC processor with PCIe Gen5 and DDR5 memory support.

The move will bring Ampere closer to becoming a true alternative to AMD and Intel.
