I suppose he is not the other Chuck Moore, inventor of FORTH, who is still going strong into his 70's with a 144 compute core chip (see greenarraychips.com)

I was implying ARM vs. x86, not ARM vs. GPUs.

GPUs are likely even more power efficient than ARM CPUs for many applications.

Wonder if Chuck Moore is related to Gordon Moore.

Performance per Watt is indeed the killer in HPC. I am not sure I agree ARM have no future in HPC. IMO, the window of opportunity has never been larger for them. It'll take time, yes, but I think it will happen.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
