X86 applications

Box86 enables running x86 (Linux) applications on non-x86 Linux systems. Integrated with DynaRec (dynamic recompiler) and by using native library box86 enable high performance on GPU based applictions. (Source from https://github.com/ptitSeb/box86). As Ampere Altra and Altra Max can support both 32 and 64 applications, Box86 are natively supported on Ampere platforms.

Remote rendering, simulation, and visualization

Remote rendering, simulation and visualization are important for big dataset, computational demanding simulations, etc. The applications include CFD (aerodynamic design, weather prediction, etc), centralized computer aided systems (AR/VR), big data set (like BIM). Together with partners, Ampere has enabled various GPUs on Ampere Altra and Altra Max platforms. Servers support large RAM, SSD, multiple GPUs, and multiple CPUs are available for large data set with demanding simulation tasks.

Results which are reported as "Unverified" imply that we were unable to collect a result due to an issue within our test infrastructure. When we root-cause an Unverified result the write-up will appear in the Test Notes section of the solution page for the software under test. An unverified test result does not imply an issue with the software under test - it means only that Ampere was unable to confirm one or more steps in our verification process.
