AMD wants to get into Android and Chrome. Literally.

by Nate SwannerJune 6, 2013
Fortunately, this is not AMD’s first foray into mobile technology. They had processors in Windows tablets at one point, but those were poorly received by consumers and didn’t sell well. With Android and Chrome, AMD hopes for a fresh start.

ARM’s plan is to get everyone competing with Intel

by Gary SimsDecember 4, 2012
There have been lots of companies that designed and built CPUs over the years including HP, Sun, IBM, DEC, VIA and of course Intel, AMD and ARM. Most of these companies have either switched to Intel or are only supplying CPUs for their in-house products. The exceptions are AMD and ARM. AMD has tried (and in many ways succeeded) to fight Intel on its own ground and its release of a 64-bit x86 chip back in 2003 really was a coup and a boost for the company. However since then, AMD hasn't managed to pull off another game changing maneuver and Intel is still king. But AMD's recent agreement with ARM could change all of that.

Traditional x86 chip builder AMD to start making ARM processors

by Gary SimsOctober 31, 2012
In the old days (of like 24 hours ago) companies like Samsung, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments made ARM chips, while Intel and AMD made x86 based CPUs. Simple. Well not any more. AMD have announced that not only will it make x86 based CPUs but it will now make ARM based chips as well. ARM based processors, which tech companies license from the British company ARM Holdings, are the most widely used 32-bit CPUs around. They can be found in a whole variety of devices including the majority of Android, Apple and Microsoft based smartphones and tablets.

ARM beats market expectations with 23% profit surge

by LucianJuly 25, 2012

It seems that ARM has beaten again the forecasters’ predictions for Q2 2012, and even better, the British chip designer outperformed the industry as well.

While Intel and Qualcomm had to reduce expectations for their results, ARM surprised everyone with a 23% profit surge in the last quarter, or a $103.2 million pre-tax profit for $135 million worth of sales. Analyst Julian Yates at Investec said it was a good set of numbers – “It’s 5 percent ahead of our profit number, and they have beats on top-line royalties and licenses”.

Admittedly, ARM is not playing with billions every quarter like Intel does. But they don’t need to, [...]

AMD and Intel reveal the direction of CPU development

by Gary SimsJune 21, 2012

The humble central processing unit (CPU) has been powering our computing devices for decades and the changes and innovations seen over the years have been nothing but astounding. But the big CPU companies aren’t resting on their laurels. Recently AMD and Intel have made announcements which give us a tantalizing taste of what could be to come. First up, AMD has announced that it will start including ARM Cortex-A5 CPUs inside of its x86 APUs (Accelerated Processing Units). AMD coined the term APU for a single piece of silicon – known as system-on-a-chip (SoC) – which contain more than just a CPU. The current AMD APUs contain an x86-based CPU plus an integrated GPU.
