K12 was to be AMD's first custom microarchitecture based on the ARMv8-A (AArch64) instruction set with a planned release in 2017. Its predecessor the A1100 series, also ARMv8-A, used ARM Cortex-A57 cores. As of 2018[update] the product still hasn't been released, with development of ARM architectures continuing but no products planned.
|Architecture and classification|
|Min. feature size||14 nm FinFET|
|Instruction set||ARM64 (ARMv8-A)|
The microarchitecture was to focus on high frequency and power efficiency and will target the dense server, embedded and semi-custom market segments.
