@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.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
