AMD is also working on a new 64-bit x86 Coreby Anand Lal Shimpi on May 5, 2014 1:16 PM EST
Jim Keller joined Mark Papermaster on stage at AMD's Core Innovation Update press conference and added a few more details to AMD's K12 announcement. Keller stressed AMD's expertise in building high frequency cores, as well as marrying the strengths of AMD's big cores with those of its low power cores. The resulting K12 core is a 64-bit ARM design, but Jim Keller also revealed that his team is working on a corresponding 64-bit x86 core.
The x86 counterpart doesn't have a publicly known name at this point, but it is a new design built from the ground up.

whickywhickyjim - Monday, May 5, 2014 - linkpapermaster. what a perfect fit or a company that is fantastic at meaningless paper launches. thanks for not sharing if it will be am3+ compatible, amd. another snub to loyal customers.
MartinT - Monday, May 5, 2014 - linkYeah, because it's at all reasonable to expect a 2016 clean sheet CPU design to be hobbled by compatibility with a 2009 socket.
What a load of bull.
whickywhickyjim - Monday, May 5, 2014 - linknice try, trollie. am3+ launched in q4 2011. customers were promised am3+ variants of steamroller and excavator that aren't going to be delivered. go suck a butt.
MartinT - Monday, May 5, 2014 - linkEven if that were true, which I'm not sure it is, wouldn't you still be a fool for believing a promise made by AMD?
