A new report has surfaced that suggest AMD is working on finalizing a consumer-focused System on Chip for mobile devices. The SoC is said to feature a combined core design comprised of ARM Cortex A57 and A53 cores and will be deployed in tablets and high-end smartphones this winter.

The combined core design should prove to be interesting as the A57 architecture is designed around a multi-issue pipeline that is capable of executing commands out of order, while the A53 is a much more docile core that runs instruction sets in order very efficiently. Graphics are said to be handled by a GCN architecture GPU, which is the same technology that powered the Radeon HD 7000 series of video cards. AMD is expected to launch the new SoC sometime in Q4, but not much else is known.
