AMD has recently confirmed that no new drivers for 32-bit versions of Windows would be released, a move that rival NVIDIA has also announced earlier this year.
AMD’s latest Radeon drivers no longer come with support for the 32-bit version of Windows 8.1, with the company now providing software only for the 64-bit SKU of the Windows 10 predecessor.
CrystalCPUID is a CPU-diagnostics program. It helps to determine the types and properties of the processor(s) used in the system, as well as the actual clock rate. In case of certain CPU types it also offers some setting options. These all fall under the tuning category – manufacturers do not support this, so you can use this function only at your own risk.
AMD made history when it released the “Seattle” processor, since it was its first 64-bit ARM-based processor made for servers and one of the first 64-bit ARM chips, period. It also happened to be a much stronger chip than what the ARM architecture is known for.
AMD WILL UNITE 64-bit x86 and ARM architectures in its chips next year while bringing on board support for Android in a development effort dubbed "Project Skybridge".
Like most self-respecting companies out there, AMD has also started to work on a tablet project on its own. And at MWC 2014, the chip-company showed a pretty interesting reference model that, among other things, ran Windows 8.1 64-bit.
Intel may be constantly hedging on whether or not it will make ARM-based processors, but Advanced Micro Devices is much more proactive on the matter, having finally released a chip based on it: Opteron A1100. The ARM processor architecture has a serious advantage in terms of power efficiency over x86, and because of that, it has always been the preferred technology for small and mobile devices.
Advanced Micro Devices has steadily been laying off the pressure on the high-end x86 processor market, seemingly leaving it all to Intel, but now it's confirmed that it was all part of a plan. A plan involving the ARM architecture that is.
AMD is going to be a key player on the ARM server market, but that doesn't mean it isn't designing ARM-based chips for other things. If recent rumors are true, we may soon have something competing with NVIDIA's Tegra processor.
AMD is planning a system-on-chip (SoC) for embedded designs using up to eight ARM 64bit A57 cores as well as two new x86-based devices.

A DECADE AGO AMD released the first Opteron processor and with it the first 64-bit x86 processor. AMD's lavish New York launch for the Opteron processor was far more than a product launch, it was AMD showing it could reproduce the success of the Athlon K7 chip and take the fight to Intel by developing ground breaking new features and not just one-upping its rival on some benchmarks. The firm's Opteron processor brought 64-bit computing to the commodity x86 chip market, along with an on-die memory controller and the Hypertransport bus all in one product.

Last year AMD officially became an ARM licensee, although the deal wasn't publicized at the time. Fast forward to June 2012 and we saw the first fruits of that deal: AMD announced it would integrate ARM's Cortex A5 core into its 2013 APUs to enable TrustZone support.
