What can IBM® Power® E1080 do?



Key features of IBM Power E1080

Optimize core operational and AI apps

Faster response to business demands

World-record SAP SD-two-tier benchmark with 8 sockets beats the best 16-socket results of x86 environment.¹

Enhanced performance and efficient scalability

Revolutionary 7nm Power10 processor provides a lower energy footprint.

Flexible deployment

IBM Power10 generation of servers are designed to make technology a frictionless experience.

Persistent security

New layer of defense with transparent memory encryption keeps all data in memory encrypted between memory and processor.²

Improved protection

4X more crypto engines in every core compared to Power9³ accelerates encryption performance across stack.

Security-rich design

In-core defense for attacks and support are designed to protect data from core to cloud.

Streamlined insights

Computational strength and data bandwidth manage the demanding AI inferencing and machine learning.

Continuous operations

Advanced recovery, diagnostic capabilities and more than 2x greater Open Memory Interface (OMI) increase server's consistency.

Optimized reliability and availability

Power10 DIMMs deliver 2X better memory reliability and availability than industry standard DIMMs.⁴
