Start64!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.

The Sunnyvale, California-based company has glibly informed the world that, come 2014, it will release 64-bit ARM-based Opteron central processing units, marking the biggest marketing disruption since x86 64-bit Opteron CPUs debuted back in 2003.
