AMD Joins Forces with ARM to Make 64-bit Processors
SAN FRANCISCO — AMD has announced at a press conference here that it is partnering with ARM, its former competitor in the chip business, to work on a new generation of low-power servers for data centers.
The new technology brings together ARM's low-power, 64-bit chip architecture with the tech that MD acquired through the microserver company SeaMicro earlier in the year.
The new processors should become available in 2014.
The partnership will also bring together AMD's X86-based designs with ARM's low-power architectures traditionally found in mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets.
This past summer, AMD revealed that it was licensing ARM's TrustZone security technology for use with its x86-based APUs.
