AMD "Advanced Micro Devices has hired JPMorgan Chase & Co to explore options, which could include a potential sale, as the chipmaker struggles to find a role in an industry increasingly focused on mobile and away from traditional PCs, according to three sources familiar with the situation." Woah. Bad news for competition in the x86 space.

I wouldn't be surprised if the ARM64 is not cheaper to produce than ARM 32-bit.

Part of the improvements probably came from using going with a smaller process, for example from 32nm to 22nm.
