@Peter Clarke: I would sure like to know what their power management solution is for that many CPU's. Also, at 10-RU height, I imagine this server needs to be placed at the bottom of the rack to maximize the cooling from cold air -do you know if that is a requirement? Also, what does their dual-die ASICs do? Is there any hardware/chip-level hypervisor for load balancing between the CPU's? MP Divakar

A comparison with those ARM based server chips on power/performance would be nice.

It is really an engineering piece, the cheapest Intel Processors put in place of a server CPUs, the saving in terms of power and space is mentioned in the article, but it will be simultaneously necessary to mentioned the details of reduction in the investment.
