The AMD Opteron A1100 series SoC is comes with up to eight ARM Cortex A57 cores with a total of 4MB L2 cache and 8MB L3 cache. Utilizing either DDR3 or DDR4 memory up to 1866 MHz and ECC modules supports. For the networking it’s equipped with 2X 10Gbs Ethernet network and it also supports up to 8-lane PCIe and 14 SATA3 ports.

The AMD Opteron A1100 SoC is targeting at streaming, web and storage workloads for cloud and hyperscale datacentres. In addition AMD has been instrumental in supporting the 64-bit ARM software ecosystem which is a critical component to any new processor. AMD has working teamed up with Enterprise Linux leaders the Red Hat and SUSE on operating systems and application support.
