AMD moves away from Intel with its first ARM processor

New, 46 comments

AMD is finally set to release an all-ARM processor next year, but rather than a low-power chip made for smartphones and tablets, "Seattle" is a 64-bit processor intended for use in servers. The American chipmaker, which has been Intel's understudy in the x86 market for decades, previously announced it would integrate ARM into its processors, and has already done so with an x86-ARM hybrid chip meant for the "embedded " market. "Seattle," however, represents the first time the company has moved away from x86 entirely for a processor. It's set to debut in 2014.
