Watt the heck is this? A 32-core 3.3GHz Arm server CPU shipping? Yes, says Ampere

a handle

"32 cores vs 16 (32 with hyper-threading)" but since Aug 1st 2018 hyperthreading needs to be turned off in environments such as hypervisors.

Our servers dropped from 32 to 16 logical cpus without any noticeable performance drop, according to tests by vmware (or was it intel) some environments run faster with hyperthreading disabled.

Hyperthreading is hype, it isn't helping much in many or most environments.
