It's an Heirofalcon! It's Seattle! It's an Opteron!

Today, AMD officially released the Opteron A1100 series. Unlike previous ARM attempts, AMD fully baked their design from hardware to software to introduce the first PC-like SoC. x86 is not just an ISA but an ecosystem with defined processes for booting, IO access, and basic compatibility for reusability of code. Coming from the embedded world, ARM solutions have always been one-off in terms of ecosystem. Samsung's Exynos and Qualcomm Snapdragon are prime examples of this. It really excites us that a tier 1 vendor is building the groundwork for ARM based chips. We hope that other vendors follow in AMD's footsteps.
