LONDON – Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. is planning to introduce an ARM-based CPU for server applications in 2014, according to a Seoul Economic Daily report in Korean.
Intel currently holds 90 percent of the market for server processors, the report said.
Samsung is planning to introduce a very low-power processor aimed at the micro-server market as early as 2014, the report said.
Samsung already has ARM-based multicore processors for the smartphone market and is expected to have an ARM-based CPU for personal computers ready for the launch of the Windows 8 operating system by Microsoft Corp., in October, the report said.
EE Times had a scoop on this a few months ago, detailing how Samsung is building an ARM server CPU team in Austin.
