Bring back the Am29000! That was a very nice architecture.

Ah yes, the 29k, which morphed it's way into the K5 (at least the methodology behind it). Some of the best architecture I've seen. They're going to have some serious brain-drain, for sure. Hope they can come back strong.

Unfortunately, AMD isn't as well positioned in the high ASP embedded markets such as comms and networking as is Intel. The graphics+CPU "APUs" AMD is now focused on won't fare well in embedded systems that will prefer lower cost and power ARM SoCs running free Android.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
