  • The POWER9 processor is well-suited to handle the demands of artificial intelligence and high-performance computing workloads.
  • The performance of the POWER9 processor is 2x that of the latest x86-based architecture.
  • OpenCAPI bus technologies incorporated into POWER9 allow the processor to communicate coherently with devices attached to CAPI buses, providing fast, smooth transitions with low latency and reduced compute overhead.
