IBM Power 8 processors began shipping Oct. 2014, designed to compete with Intel’s X86 architecture. It is the latest and greatest from IBM. The IBM POWER7+ processor serves up new and unique innovations to continue the leadership performance that now serves as the industry standard.

IBM formerly had 2 midrange hardware lines: Servers from the AS/400 family, and the POWER-based servers from the RS/6000 family running AIX and Linux. In 2008, IBM merged the two lines of servers under “Power Systems”, with identical hardware and a choice of operating systems. In 2010, IBM announced new models with the new POWER7 microprocessor.
