I think ARM has a big oppotunity in Linux server market and AMD is great partner.
AMD has every chance to succeed in mobile as AMD has even more capacity than NVIDIA.

AMD is not new to the mobile game. and they are the reason why qualcomm tops the charts for its gpu processing power. Yes AMD develops the adreno technology for qualcomm.

I'm sorry i got the facts wrong, their partnership was severed when qualcomm bought the whole of adreno division from AMD. previously it was known as imageon

Yes, and Adreno is an acronym of Radeon

AMD is kind of late to the game but still has the chance of catching up considering Intel hasn't made an impact with Medfield yet.

These are mainly based on server chips, that both Amd & Arm's venture.
Looks like Amd is strugling, once a power player was in the industry, hope these 2 company would immediately provide a new competetive advantage over iNtel. Wish them luck.

I think it's a bit too late?
While Exynos, NovaThor, and the giant Snapdragon is already there, Huawei create their own processor too, intel already starts, now AMD want to get in?
AMD is a very nice low-priced processor. But it's already too crowd here.
While TI understands the situation and walk out, AMD come in?

What would be cool with all these choices would be if you could start building your own smart phone like you could build your own PC. This way you can swap out parts to upgrade to new ones and basically give a new meaning to personalizing your smart phone.
