So ST used to help Loongson get Godson processors made. Who is making the 32-nm version? Globalfoundries, Samsung, TSMC? And is it strictly bulk, planar CMOS? It is looking like it could be a Globalfoundries shuffle from 32-nm to 28-nm, but any body that knows for sure is welcome to chime in.

I believe the Godson paper presenter said ST made the 32 nm chip

allwinner is responsible of competing with intel. you might see a lenovo/dell story evolve again at cpu front.

As of 2010, GlobalFoundries and TSMC already cancelled 32 nm going directly to 28 nm instead (at least in naming). So the 32 nm Godson is probably made by Samsung if after 2010. http://news.softpedia.com/news/Globalfoundries-32nm-Bulk-Process-Canceled-139063.shtml Samsung still offers 32 nm today: http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/foundry/process-technology/32-28nm

If he starts selling a lot of servers to China government departments and eventually commercial data centers like Baidu he could do quite well.

MIPs based servers - I remember that died in the late 80s. How much traction they will see in the market is to be seen given the challenges of getting the army of ecosystem developers to drop what they are doing and support another new MIPS ISA.

Actually, how does it compare to the current ARM server SoCs and comming A57 in terms of perf and perf/watt? Any benchmark numbers?
