Last week the Etc. post from Cyril said he was at AMD so something is coming.

My guess is ARM server something or other stuff.

Yeah looks like a CPU to me, probably a high-powered ARM one for servers they've been raving about.

Can't tell how many cores but I see things repeated at least 4 times in some places, 8 depending on the pattern. I've read other places that these CPUs were sampling now, slated for a Q4 release, so it'd make sense they preview it around now too.

i was assuming arm as well, but their statement -

"Something SMALL is coming and it’s BIG news! Can you guess what is? Click for a hint!"

piqued my interest. i.e. SMALL - BIG

It's the launch of Beema, which is purportedly going to get AMD into tablets where their previous efforts with Kabini have fallen flat.

They are going to put all of their money in a frozen banana stand.

That's a picture of the Kabini die so it'll probably be something along those lines. I'd love to see a new, big x86 core from AMD but really, I think it's just too much to hope for. As Chuckula has said, it'll probably just be Beema. Yawn.
