AMD to offer 64-bit ARM-based Opterons

Written by Fudzilla staff



2014


AMD’s big “strategic” announcement is out, and as expected it’s all about bringing ARM to Opterons.

AMD plans to design 64-bit ARM server parts, described as highly integrated SoCs optimized for dense, energy efficient servers. So, ARM-based AMD processors will not power your tablet anytime soon, but they could end up powering cloud servers used by your tablet.

The first ARM Opterons should be ready in 2014, so it is still too early to talks specs. One thing is clear, they should end up a lot more efficient than x86 Opterons.

The announcement is the first stage of AMD’s ambidextrous strategy and we can only guess whether we will see AMD ARM chips in the consumer space anytime soon. We wouldn’t bet on it, but it’s a possibility.
