Ten years after debuting its 64-bit x86 chip, AMD is introducing a family of G-series processors built on the "Jaguar" architecture for the Windows Embedded 8 and Linux platforms. AMD says the series will have five models and the system-on-chip approach is more energy efficient. Gareth Halfacree writes that the processors are "a clear indication of how AMD's priorities have shifted over the last few years. Finding itself unable to compete with Intel's latest Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge products at the performance end of the market, the company is increasingly looking to HSA -- formerly known as Fusion -- for its future."
