2014? So many companies are already aiming at this market with multi core ARM chipsets. Why not go and buy one of them?

EE Times had a scoop on this a few months ago, detailing how Samsung is building an ARM server CPU team in Austin. See http://confidential.eetimes.com/news-updates/4236448/Samsung--Huawei-Pursue-Low-Power-Servers

It's a hot emerging market and a lot of ARM SoC makers want a piece of it including Nvidia, Samsung and newcomers such as Calxeda and Applied Micro.

It has great margins and with Samsung scale, they can compete with anyone. It is also good that Intel sees competitions.

This better be the 64-bit architecture as the ARM 32-bit Cortex family (A9/A15) simply won't cut it.

What a joke! Have you ever tried one of the ARM netbooks? They are really sad! Extremely poor performance. Now they are going to try servers? Good luck with that :) lol

They will need newer processors here. The mobile processors will not cut it.

ARM 32-bit is OK for some limited apps, but yeah for the long haul they want the new V8 64-bit architecture and it is coming in 2013 from Applied, Nvidia and probably others

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.
