Collaboration with AMD delivers new developer system expanding the 64-bit ARM ecosystem.
ARM Cortex® A57
Uses less than 35w of power in standby mode
AMD® Opteron™ A1100 SoC
The SoftIron OverDrive 1000 is ideal for software developers looking to move beyond general purpose computing and build proof-of-concept trials around a more diverse CPU estate utilizing specialized workloads. Building and porting applications for ARM 64-bit architecture is vital to establishing a strong eco-system. The SoftIron OverDrive 1000 platform gives developers the opportunity to expand the architecture’s potential in a production environment. The system comes pre-installed with industry leading software.
ARMv8-based platforms are designed to run both intensive and scale-out applications with lower energy consumption than standard x86 servers. Even under full load, the OverDrive 1000 consumes less than 35W of power, making it around 2.5 times more efficient than systems powered by mainstream alternative CPUs.
