    Default AMD’s Project Skybridge: New ARM and x86 chips that are pin-compatible

    At its Core Innovation Update press conference, AMD has outlined the future of its x86 and ARM efforts. The most notable announcement was the unveiling of Project Skybridge, which in 2015 will see new 20nm x86 and ARM SoCs that are pin-compatible with each other — that is, there could be a single chipset/socket that can take either an ARM or x86 SoC, depending on what makes more sense for the user. AMD also showed off its first, working 64-bit ARM server chip (Seattle), and slipped in a quick aside that it is indeed working on a new, from-scratch x86 core, with an expected release sometime around 2016 (so, probably 14/16nm).

    Boy did I call a lot of this over the last few months! Scrapped the FX line and started from Scratch! Rory was not releasing another mediocre FX CPU that couldnt compete. Rory took it a big leap forward by having X86 and ARM fit into the same socket and chipset. As a user you will have a choice on what you want to run. I love it! Come on 2015 and 2016!!

    Thank you so much for posting this. I missed this!
