AMD makes ARM Cortex-A57 64bit Server Processor

Posted by – October 31, 2012

AMD has announced that they are launching a new ARM Cortex-A57 64bit ARMv8 Processor in 2014, targetted for the servers market. This is an interview with Andrew Feldman, VP and GM of Data Center Server Solutions Group at AMD. Do you have any more questions you may want to ask AMD about the release of their first ARM Processor? Let me know in the comments, and I can try to ask them again here at ARM Techcon in Santa Clara during the next couple of days.

    AMD IS just trying to delay their destruction. Becoming an ARM partner is just about the worst thing AMD could do to save itself Read this: http://semiaccurate.com/2012/10/30/amd-announces-an-arm64-server-soc-for-seamicro/.

    Take anything from that site with a grain of salt, the writer (Charlie Demerjian) can be extremely biased in his reporting. Just for not getting a news scoop he’s been known to post rant articles against a company to the point of even using open insults.

    He also apparently doesn’t like to get called on it as the comment system for that site has been disabled for quite awhile now. It didn’t help that they never retracted on posts that were obviously wrong.

    AMD does have issues it has to deal with and they’ve been on a downward trend for awhile but we don’t know yet whether they’re in just a long lull period or in serious and possibly terminal trouble yet.

    They do have some interesting plans going forward and hopefully they can recover over the next few years as it wouldn’t be good for Intel to be the only major x86 chip maker. We need competition and alternatives!

    Though the move of ARM to 64bit goes a long way to providing a 3rd option and at the very least it increases AMD’s range of products.
