AWS pours cash into custom silicon

Using technology from Arm Holdings (OTCPK:ARMHF), Amazon Web Services (NASDAQ:AMZN) has designed a second, more powerful generation of data center processor chip, Reuters reports.

Sources said it will be at least 20% faster than Amazon’s first Arm-based chip, named Graviton, which was released last year as a low-cost option for easier computing tasks.

If the efforts are successful, it could also lessen AWS’s reliance on Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) and Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) for server chips.
