AMD G-series ARM based CPU announced (not x86)

The answer, according to AMD's Arun Iyengar, is that AMD is paving the way for an ARM-designed CPU as part of this embedded series. Whereas the X-branded x86 chips will serve power envelopes of 9W all the way up to 25W, future A-branded versions could bring power consumption right down to less than 3W:

"Ultimately, we're going to have x86 and ARM in our product portfolio."

Wow. who-let-rip-smiley.png

Looks like they are going to be making ARM CPUs paired with AMD Radeon GPUs SoC for tablets and such.

The transition... It comes!!

If AMD has switched to ARM for the low power parts, it has to mean something. Keep going X86 for smartphones Intel thumb.gif

(whose chips, by the way, have comparable power consumption due to vastly superior manufacturing nodes... Put an Atom on a 28nm TSMC and watch it be trumped by anything in the market)

Apparently 125% faster than Atom in several tests on the cpu side, and 5x on the gpu drool.gif

Proper OpenGL support, on an ARM CPU. Interesting. Should make low-level gaiming actually possible for once.

I know, for instance, FSO is fully capable of running on ARM, but the OpenGL ES limitation makes it... less than ideal. Full up OpenGL 4.2 support will go a long way toward making the goal possible.
