AMD Strengthens Competitive Stance With Skybridge Project
AMD is giving Intel OEM and ODM partners a reason to consider working with the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based chipmaker with its Project Skybridge. The design framework initiative seeks to bridge the gap between x86 and ARM processors by creating a single motherboard that supports either chip architecture and can run Windows, Linux or Android.
AMD competitors like Intel and Qualcomm are focused on specific processors and operating systems. Industry-watchers say AMD's ambidextrous framework makes the company an attractive alternative.
