Intel launched the Denverton system-on-a-chip family in early 2017. Also known as the C3000 series, the Denverton SoCs are based on Intel’s Goldmont Atom microarchitecture and are designed to power enterprise-level NAS storage devices. The only Denverton chip on the market currently is the C3338 SoC with 2 cores and no multithreading, but it seems that this is just the entry level model. Gigabyte Server has recently unveiled a new motherboard powered by an unannounced high-end Denverton SoC that integrates 16 cores. The C3985 SoC comes with 1MB of L2 per core and a 2.0 GHz base frequency. It supports up to 128GB of DDR4-2400 RDIMM or 64GB of UDIMM RAM, and also features a low TDP of 31 W.

Gigabyte Server is delivering the C3958 16-core SoC together with their new MA10-ST0 motherboard, designed for the cold storage / edge storage market. The new model features 16 SATA adapters through the SFF8087 chip, a PCIE X8 slot, 10 Gigabit Ethernet through two SFP+ ports, plus a series of server management features coming with the ASpeed AST2400 module. The motherboard also features a TMP and a COM header, as well as 32 GB of eMMC flash memory for OS installation.

The new MA10-ST0 is already available and can be ordered through Gigabyte’s local reps. pricing information is not publicly available, but since the last generation was priced at US$350, the MA10-ST0 could exceed US$400.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
