Hopefully, dedicated servers will become more and more energy efficient, as the number of servers in this world is going to only increase as the Internet becomes more and more widespread and the amount of information online increases. Paul - http://www.connetu.com/

Slow news day, so the press is stirring up controversy. ARM based server make about as much sense as human powered cars. Rip out the (Xeon)engine use your ARMs to paddle

Sounds like the bath water over at Marvell is tasting pretty good (to them)! But I have to admit that I admire them ... like someone who admires the Japanese kamikazes.

"There was a lot of tuning of the software needed to get the right performance, but overall it was a smooth roll out" *Ding* *Ding* *Ding* A clear enunciation of the bottleneck for achieving x86-perf on all non-x86 architectures. Also, whats the point of a 2 GHz processor that consumes 1 W when the DRAM in servers consumes hundreds of Watts?

mikeuhler: "Oh really. So if the first GHz takes 700mW, how does the second GHz take less than half that. Seems like a great marketing sound bite, with questionable relationship to reality." Umm...leakage power consumption is a constant 400mW, and active power consumption is 300mW/1GHz?

"... Marvell announced its Armada 310 that runs at a gigahertz while consuming 700 milliW and will scale to 2 GHz at less than a Watt, Milner said." Oh really. So if the first GHz takes 700mW, how does the second GHz take less than half that. Seems like a great marketing sound bite, with questionable relationship to reality.

What do ARM-based servers need to be successful?

So IBM, Google can move their servers back from Arctic someday:). It will be intresting to know how they meet the extremely high speed communication interfaces.

The start up company (www.tilera.com) also release the 100 core CPU for server application. anyway it is all bad news for Intel.
