OCTEON® II CN67XX Processors

OCTEON® II CN67XX Multi-Core MIPS64 Processors


The OCTEON® II CN67XX family of Multi-Core MIPS64 Processors targets high-performance, high-throughput, service-rich applications in secure datacenter, mobile internet, and borderless enterprise applications. The family includes six software and pin-compatible processors, with 8 to 16 cnMIPS64 v2 cores and full pin and software compatibility with the OCTEON II CN68XX processor family which enables scaling up to a 32 cores using the same hardware and software design. The CN67XX also offers over 60 application acceleration engines and the latest standards-based connectivity including PCIe Gen2, XAUI, Double-speed XAUI, RXAUI, SGMII, and Interlaken, providing major compute performance, throughput, power consumption, and services performance advantages over alternative solutions.

The CN67XX processors offer high compute performance for demanding 4G/LTE infrastructure applications, switch/router and ATCA blades, and high-performance appliances. With 20 configurable Gen2 SERDES, 2 DDR3 controllers, a 4MB L2 Cache, and complete application acceleration, including packet processing, encryption/Decryption, Deep Packet Inspection (RegEx), Compression/decompression, De-duplication, RAID, and Multi-core scaling, the CN67XX offers compelling compute performance as well as the highest throughput processing and services.

Powerful control plane processing solutions are enabled with high-frequency cores up to 1.5GHz, large and highly-associative L1 and L2 caches, and up to 200Gbps of DDR3 DRAM bandwidth.

Supported by industry-standard software toolchains and operating systems, the CN67XX offers 2X to 5X performance, power, and real-estate advantage over alternatives. OCTEON II family is fully software compatible with the widely-adopted OCTEON Plus family, enabling straightforward software reuse.
