AMD have stated in earnings calls that they have ongoing research into ARM solutions. Even when they cancelled K12, they didn't just stop looking at ARM entirely, they just realized that at the time, the eco system for ARM wasn't there and AMD wasn't in a position to fund development of products without immediate financial gain. I am sure AMD has a small team continuously analyzing ARM and possible AMD products using the ARM architecture. If/when that small team turns into a full product development team is the unknown. Perhaps it's already happened (as the twitter rumor suggests), or it could be a misunderstanding and the 'almost ready' comment is more that AMD is almost ready to transition to fully funding an ARM chip which means it won't come out for at least a couple of years. Either way, if AMD is almost ready with an ARM CPU or almost ready to fully develop one, it shouldn't be too long before we get additional hints through earnings reports and other leaks.Well, hm let's say AMD K12 is back or returned from hibernation.
AMD may have an Apple M1 competitor in the works. Rumor is that there are two versions of this chip being developed, with and without integrated RAM. It is possible that AMD could be looking to revive its K12 Core design or improve on it with newer Cortex designs to exploit the highly lucrative...www.notebookcheck.net
