DigiTimes claims AMD is developing an ARM-based tablet processor named Amur. The company is reportedly conducting internal testing on the processor, which will support both Android and Linux. Amur is expected to be released in Q3 2015. The article also mentions that Intel's Cherry Trail CPUs will enter mass production in March 2015 and that Intel is also preparing the Atom Z3000 CPU for the 64-bit tablet market.
Despite slowing growth in global tablet demand, Intel will unveil Cherry Trail, 14nm-based SoC processors specifically designed for tablets and equipped with Intel 8th-generation GPUs, and supporting Android and Windows, in the first quarter of 2015 and start volume production in March, while AMD will launch Nolan, a x86-architecture tablet platform, and Amur, a heterogeneous system architecture (HSA) Android-specific tablet platform based on ARM Cortex-A57, in the third quarter of 2015, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers.
