"I guess performance/power ratio is what matters!" .... It is. We need benchmarks to assess the viability of such products.

8 X Dual core Cortex A9 @ 600 Mhz is a good first step, but might be ridiculously slow for a server. One Core i7 intel CPU would perform much better. Ofcourse power will be higher than 80W. I guess performance/power ratio is what matters!

I thought STM is all about inertial sensors. Never knew they are into all these areas. Good start, but still lots of ways to navigate.

This is a great start, but still it will require maturity in terms of interfacing with OS using its drivers newly designed. This will require a round or optimization of performance, but still it is a great start ahead.

Hmm, 80w is a new low for 1u but I don't see many options in the rack. ZT's site doesn't show up this yet so not sure who it is targeted to. But I suspect the bandwidth to be limited going by the configuration.
