AMD (NYSE: AMD) today disclosed its roadmap for the fast-growing embedded computing market, as it becomes the first company to offer both ARM and x86 processor solutions for low-power and high-performance embedded compute designs. The new lineup includes two best-in-class x86 accelerated processing units (APUs) and central processing units (CPUs), a first look at a high-performance ARM system-on-chip (SoC) and a new family of discrete AMD Embedded Radeon graphics processing units (GPUs) expected to launch in 2014. These additions provide the embedded industry's engineering community with more choices to match their exact design needs, and are designed to offer improvements in performance-per-watt and performance-per-dollar. Together with the recent launch of the award-winning AMD Embedded G-Series SoC family that set a superior bar for performance-per-watt low-power multicore APUs, these latest additions to the embedded product roadmap further signify a strategic push by AMD to focus on the high-growth embedded market.

Doesn't look like there's anything yet for the general consumer mobile market, e.g. cellular phones, portable tablets, and portable gaming systems.

I was hoping Steppe Eagle would be Apple's "A7X" and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 killer, but looks like I overestimated AMD a bit.

AMD has no plans to enter the consumer space with ARM products. They really have no reason to enter a new market where there is already a lot of competition. They will be focusing on bringing ARM to microservers with their IPs they acquired from seamicro.

Thus begins their slide into obscurity, at least they will be in good company.. DEC, IBM, Cyrix, VIA..

Actually AMD's expansion into ARM and other good revenue generation areas is also good for X86 consumers as the increased cash will allow AMD to expedite delivery of new X86 goodies. There are a lot of neat products coming after Kaveri ships in Q4 this year. :)
