AMD’s First ARM Chip “Seattle” to Ship in 2014

The whole plan is an effort to overtake Intel’s Xeon. Codenamed “Seattle” this server chip will be common fare within a year’s time. AMD, the parent company will also be shipping another chip codenamed “Berlin”. And last but not least there is the “Warsaw” which is going to directly rival the Xeon. Seattle will help the company recover the position it had lost in the market. The previous year, AMD had vowed to wed ARM 64 bit technology with Freedom Fabric. In matters having to do with servers, Intel has a monopoly of more than 95% of the market share. If AMD wants to compete with Intel it will have to look to its ARM technology. ARM is what the world’s smart phones work on. The snag is that ARM ran on a 32 bit system while servers ran on 64 bit instruction code.

Ultimately, ARM was shifted to a 64 bit system in 2011. There’s no question that ARM will be a viable technology in the world pretty soon. The Seattle chip will run at a speed greater than 2 gigahertz. Meanwhile, the Berlin chip will have twofold greater performance features than Kyoto. Berlin will be made available to the public in 2014.

AMD clearly has a cool-headed approach. With its range of Opteron microchip processors which number Seattle, Berlin and Warsaw in their repertoire, AMD has definitely got a handle on the future. Berlin is the coolest chip since it uses a Steamroller core. Meanwhile, the Seattle chip is slightly meatier than the rest. The rest of the milestones that AMD has to cover are not that many. The stakes may be high but than AMD is willing to enter the gamble against its major competitor and that is none other than Intel. It wants to be a shareholder in the x 86 server markets.

Up until now Nvidia has a firm hold but for how long no one knows.  The game is on and the race has begun between the Titans. When they fight it out in the ring only one tough tech company will emerge as the definitive winner. It is a matter of luck and skills. The combination of tenacity and perseverance will see AMD emerge a champion from this battle for supremacy.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
