Power10 Scale-Out

Increase your power capacity while reducing your carbon footprint

 The Power10 system growth supports more workload on the same number of cores OR core counts can be reduced by up to ½ (based on Power8). Same work, less infrastructure, smaller carbon footprint. 

Power E8080C and E980

Compared to Power E8080C

Compared to Power E980

Power10 is more sustainable than previous systems as you can lower your carbon footprint by doing the same workload with less infrastructure.
