AMD demonstrates Seattle ARM-based server chip for first time

The Tech Report writes AMD gave its first public demonstration of Seattle, the company's upcoming ARM-based server processor. The chip is based on the ARM Cortex-A57 core and AMD demonstrated it by giving a web hosting demonstration. AMD showed the machine running a WordPress blog and streaming a video.
The demo involved web hosting. AMD showed the entire LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack running on top of a Seattle-powered development server. You probably can't read the little spec sheet in the picture above, so here's what it says:

AMD Opteron A1100 series development platform
  • AMD Opteron A1100 Series processor
  • 4 registered DIMM slots for up to 128GB of DDR3 DRAM
  • PCI Express connectors configurable as single x8 or dual x4 ports
  • 8 Serial ATA connectors
  • Compatibility with standard power supplies
  • Linux environment based on Fedora

    The demo kicked off with this system spitting out web pages with information about the various software installed: Apache 2.4.6, MySQL 5.5.35, and PHP 5.4.16. The operating system was identified as "Red Hat Server for ARM 2.0 (development preview)," although I don't see that release referenced on the Red Hat website.
