In the latest AMD annual shareholders report, the company has revealed more details on its first ARM 64-bit server SoCs that will be going on sale in the first half of 2015.

The ARM Cortex-A57 architecture based SoC has been codenamed ‘Hierofalcon’ and was first detailed last year. AMD started sampling these Embedded R-series chips last year and is aiming to release the chipset in the first half of this year for embedded data center applications, communications infrastructure, and industrial solutions.

The Hierofalcon SoC will include eight Cortex-A57 cores with 4MB L2 cache and will be manufactured on a 28nm process. It will support two 64-bit DDR3/4 memory channels with ECC up to 1866MHz and up to 128GB per CPU. Connectivity options will include two 10GbE KR, 8x SATA 3 6Gb/s, 8 lanes PCIe Gen 3, SPI, UART, and I2C interfaces. The chip will have a TDP between 15 to 30W.

After the launch of Hierofalcon, AMD will be launching the SkyBridge platform that will feature interchangeable 64-bit ARM and x86 processors. In 2016, the company will be launching the K12 chip, its custom high performance 64-bit ARM core.
