AMD to ship Hierofalcon processors this year

AMD has officially announced it would ship a new processor called Hierofalcon this year. The news has been published in the company’s annual report to shareholders. The Hierofalcon chip will be a 64-bit processor and will likely carry another brand name since Hierofalcon is just a code name.

Hierofalcon is based on a 64-bit ARM architecture and is capable of including up to eight ARM Cortex-A57 cores at 2 GHz. The chip also has an integrated dual-channeled memory controller with support for DDR3 and DDR4 memory at up to 1866 MHz and supports ECC too. Finally the chip has an encryption unit, a 10 Gbit/sec Ethernet port and support for PCI-E 3.0. The TDP of Hierofalcon lies between 15W and 30W.

Hierofalcon is expected to ship by the end of H1 2015. It will be built on 28 nm tech process and will be housed in a SP1 BGA package. The chip, which was scheduled to appear in late 2014, will be used in integrated systems, network equipment and other similar digital devices.
