    Default AMD shows off the guts of its first ARM server chip

    AMD today gave a detailed look at its first ARM-based server processor, the Opteron A1100 "Seattle." Seattle has eight 64-bit ARM Cortex-A57 cores arranged into four pairs, with each pair sharing 1MB of level 2 cache. All eight cores share an 8 MB level 3 cache. There are two memory controllers, supporting both DDR3 and DDR4, enabling a total of 128GB ECC memory in total.
    These cores all share a set of I/O options. The system-on-a-chip has 8 lanes of PCIe 3.0 for expansion cards and 8 lanes of SATA revision 3.0 for storage. Network connectivity comes from two 10GBASE-KR controllers. (10GBASE-KR is a short-range specification designed for copper connections to backplanes in blade servers and modular routers.)

    ... aaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnd still using modular cores. This might fly in the server market but AMD really needs to move away from this "half core" design and move onto single strong cores, even if it means giving up a thread advantage for a cycle and dropping back to six cores again.

    It has already proven to be more effective in the server world compared to desktop PCs and notebooks. The weak cores running desktop applications struggled in single thread performance. The Opterons are different than the FX series because of a few different reasons.

    Also I would not apply the performance pitfalls of the FX series X86 cpus to any ARM based SOCs regardless of who makes them. The ISA are not even close to being the same and based on this article the entire design is not even close to the FX series or APUs. The similarities stop right after they said the word module. nothing else relates to the X86 FX, APU, Opterons or anything AMD has created before. The fundamentals of ARM is designed on RISC. Comparing RISC to X86 is a waste of effort because it doesn't process data the same way. Also ARM takes the instruction set for RISC and customizes it to be very very efficient. This is why everyone pays ARM for the rights to use its technology. Not just the hardware but the instruction sets. They could use MIPS which is also RISC based but it is also falls short in efficiency. AMD has the top end of agreements with ARM. Meaning they are allowed to create custom chips starting with the already pre-designed ARM CPUS/SOCs. There are only a few companies that hold this level of agreement with ARM. Samsung, Qualcom, Apple, AMD and a handful of others.

    No. Lol said might then went on to talk about half core ect ect. All I was saying is the failures of FX shouldn't automatically be applied to this because of the huge differences.. Relax guy, no one is attacking you.

    So the inside joke to this is at my work, I started taking this stuff called protandim over a year ago now which gave me a lot of energy so every time someone else was feeling bad or having problems, I would say protandim. The reality is this stuff has been great with helping people sleep. I didn't have sleeping trouble but my mom did, she started taking it, and now she can sleep good. The stuff is really hard to explain but it's basically an activator (in a pill form) that is scientifically proven to reduce your oxidative stress. If you're interested, PM me and I can send you some links with some more info.
