Intel keeps popping it's head into the networking space every few years and backing off. This is just one more foray. Intel based designs are just standard embedded PC designs with standard NIC chips. They choke on data rates faster than 10gbps. Wouldn't compare then to specialized chips in anyway. The main problem is that the industry is loosing embedded developers who can read a datasheet and develop firmware. We have a glut of standard C++/x86/Linux developers. Hence the growing popularity of lazy solutions like embedded PC based networking gear.

Yeah, which is a shame. PowerPC is a fantastic architecture.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
