AMD has designed x86 processor since its inception, and recently they’ve announced ARM Cortex A57 “Seatlle” SoCs targeting servers would be available later this year. They’ve now decided to merge their product line-up even further with Project Skybridge that aims to provide pin-to-pin compatible ARM and x86 SoCs and APUs by 2015, manufactured using a 20nm process.
An other interesting news is that these will be the first Heterogeneous System Architecture (“HSA”) platform for Android, which is good news as previously AMD did not seem that interested in supporting Android for their processors.
Further down the road, the company also plans to launch their own “K12” 64-bit ARM cores, along side other pin-to-pin compatible 64-bit x86 processors.

No x86 and ARM pinto-pin compatible processor with AMD. as the project is dead -> http://www.extremetech.com/computing/205078-amds-project-skybridge-the-armx86-hybrid-core-is-officially-dead
