A phrase coined by AMD to describe the bridging ARM and x86 systems (for CPUs and SoCs). The AMD CPU core design is compatible with the 64-bit ARMv8 instruction set and offers high-performance 64-bit ARM and x86 CPU cores paired with graphics.
AMD's ambidextrous computing roadmap includes "Project SkyBridge" – a new design framework, that is expected to be available in 2015, which will feature a new family of 20 nanometer APUs and SoCs that are expected to be the world's first pin-compatible ARM and x86 processors. The "K12" is a new high-performance, low-power ARM-based core that takes deep advantage of AMD’s ARM architectural license and extensive 64-bit design. The core development team is led by Chief CPU Architect Jim Keller.
AMD has demonstrated its 64-bit ARM-based AMD Opteron A-Series processor, codenamed "Seattle" running a Linux environment derived from the Fedora Project.
