AMD Seattle chips ditch x86 for ARM to undermine Intel’s server market

AMD has revealed its new "Seattle" chips, processors headed to power-dense servers, and using for the first time ARM architecture as commonly found in smartphones and tablets, rather than x86. AMD Seattle, which is expected to show up in systems from the second half of 2014, will initially offer eight ARM Cortex-A57 cores running at at least 2GHz, with 16-core versions headed to market after that. According to AMD, there'll be big advantages over traditional server chips.

AMD Kabini and Richland fight Intel for mainstream and performance notebooks

It's all-change for AMD's APU line-up for mainstream and performance notebooks in 2013, as the company attempts to hit Intel where it hurts with chips that, bang for buck, offer more performance from less power. That's the claim, anyway, and Kabini - for the mainstream - and Richland - for the performance end - are the processors that are expected to deliver it. Among the boasts are the first ever quadcore for small-display touchscreen notebooks, and up to 72-percent of the gaming performance than Intel's comparable chips.

AMD hUMA wants to speed your APU memory use, no joke

AMD hUMA wants to speed your APU memory use, no joke

Heterogeneous Uniform Memory Access may sound like the orderly queue you make outside the RAM store, but for AMD, hUMA is an essential part of squeezing the best from its upcoming Kaveri APUs. Detailed for the first time today, hUMA builds on AMD's existing Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) - integrating CPUs and GPUs into single, multipurpose chips - by allowing both the core processor and the graphics side to simultaneously access the same memory at the same time.
