AMD has its beginning in 2014, announced Thursday ARM socs released for data centers. The AMD Opteron A1100 offers up to eight Cortex A57 cores and includes integrated support for dual 10Gbit / s Ethernet interfaces.

The Opteron A1100-socs are among others in the 3000 Overdrive Soft Iron and products of Beacon Works, Caswell, and Silverlining 96 Enterprise Boards. On the software side, AMD is working with Red Hat, Suse and Linaro to optimize software for the Opterons. The availability left long in coming: AMD announced the Opteron A1100-line beginning in 2014 and the chips had to appear that year.

AMD saw, however, be forced to cut back on ARM activities and include Skybridge Project was deleted: wild AMD ARM A57 cores this project combined with x86 cores. The Opteron A1100-socs should have come then in the second half of 2015 on the market, but this deadline was not met. Now then at least the first three models appeared.

The chips appear in a PGI package of 27x27mm and there is a model with four ARM A57 cores and two versions with eight cores. All models feature 8MB of L3 cache and support dual-channel DDR3 and DDR4 memory ecc. In terms of I / O, support for PCI-E 3.0 x8, maximum fourteen SATA600 interfaces and two 10Gbit / s ports provided. In addition, a co-processor for cryptographic calculations, and secure boot integrated.

AMD focuses mainly on the socs network, storage, webserve- and software applications. The Opteron A1100-socs have to compete with the lower end of Intel’s Xeon line to go, while also include Qualcomm ARM socs developed for data center applications.
