K12 is AMD's first custom microarchitecture based on the ARMv8-A (AArch64) instruction set, currently under development[1] and estimated to be released in 2017.[2][3] Its predecessor the A1100 series, also ARMv8-A, used ARM Cortex-A57 cores.[4]

The microarchitecture will focus on high frequency and power efficiency and will target the dense server, embedded and semi-custom market segments.[5]
