AMD Guarantees 64-Bit ARM SoC Products
While AMD partnered with ARM in 2012 in order to develop the new line of Opteron chips using the ARM 64-bit instruction set, a new agreement between both entities is about to come to fruition. During a recent revenue reporting conference it held with investors, AMD revealed that it will be providing 64-bit ARM System-on-a-Chip, or SoC, products to consumers and businesses in 2014. AMD noted that the new 64-bit ARM SoC products will be sampled to customers during the first quarter of this year while it stays on track to deliver 64-bit ARM server SoCs, an industry first. President and CEO of AMD, Rory Read, stated that the company is specifically targeting the dense server market with the new 64-bit ARM server SoCs, set to be released during 2014.
