Echoes my thoughts exactly. ARM is the way forward for AMD too, but not too sure why ARM would be 'after' AMD for this. AMD isnt exactly a big player in the growing mobile segement or is it?

A monopoly in what? A dying market?

I am not an expert, but as end user I know that Intel is very fast, AMD is fast, my ARM tablets/phones are slow. To race the Indy 500 I need a 12 cylinders engine and a lot of fuel, to commute to/from work the old 4 cylinders does the job using 1 Gal for 25 miles. What about a new architecture? Also the Arm concept is old! Can it be enhanced to a high performance device and how many programs the will be available for it? is this a PowerPC repeat? is there a unified design standard? and so on. I believe that he chip technology is the paramount factor in power reduction. I think AMD, that is geared to offer high performance devices, will not be profitable making he ARM unless they capture a vary good chunk of the market.

AMD has invested so much time and money for x86 core. ARM may be way of future, but they should not drop it. Apple can buy AMD x86 business for their x86 series Macs.

The title of this article does not make sense. "Adding x" does not equal "dropping y". Surely this can not be an attempt at a sensationalist headline...?

Smart move by ARM: trying to put a foot into high end computing through a proxy :-) As for AMD, it does not make sense for them to drop x86, at least not for now - why should they? By the way, I do not buy into the immortality of x86. I could well see a world without it, and during my life time. Efficient compilers, emulators and thin-client computing could smooth the transition.

ChromeOS might be viable as on a Net machine where one does all of the normal financial transactions and is fairly virus-proof. Beyond that, it's got to be the next version of Android. I mean, how much would it take to make Android a general desktop OS as slick as Win7 or OSX?

ChromeOS seems to have been quietly shelved. All the development going into Android. Which is really a tweaked Linux.
