AMD has been teasing us with Seattle, their first ARM based CPU which Josh described back in May after AMD's presentation. The AMD Opteron A1100 series will come in 4 and 8 core versions with each core being a Cortex A57 that has up to 4MB of shared L2 and 8MB of shared L3 cache, support for DDR3 or DDR4, 8 lanes of PCIe 3.0, up to 8 SATA3 ports and two 10Gb Ethernet ports. The newly announced Dev Kit will ship with a 4 core version and it can be yours for a mere $3000 if your application is accepted by AMD. It will be very interesting to see how these are integrated into existing server rooms and applications though it is a pity we will have to wait for HSA support. Check out more at The Inquirer.
