Rick, Calxeda was shipping low power microservers well before Intel did Centerton (which had pathetic perf/Watt). So give credit where it's due, and that is not Intel.

For Mike Bruzzone please !!

Very interesting postings -- I am still lost in your initial statements -- What do you mean:

Intel is competing aggressively:

1. Sandy Bridge Generation Product Dumping; 76,744,510 units, industrial financial displacement on economics; $5,219,432,098

2. Current Ivy Bridge through Haswell Product Dumping 35,271,649 units, industrial financial displacement on economics; $1,432,313,390

3. Intel Inside sales rewards for exclusive dealing; Sherman Act Section 2 Intent, on the Intel financial; $3,641,000,000.  

I don't understand your numbers and how are they obtained + why the Sherman Act reference?

Best regards

Mike - I do not understand your last 3-4 paragrahs -- units and revenues cited

 

Can you ki8ndly explain and cite your sources

 

Many thanks

I'd be impressed if microservers could kill off regular servers. By that time, ARM could be a big player.

@Kinnar: Avoton is targted solely at servers. Intel has other Atom products aimed at tablets (Bay Trail) and smartphones (Medfield and etc.)

@Fonya: Give Intel some credit for radically scaling back the power of Xeon and Atom cores in servers...and fir being the the first to ship a custom low-power SoC for servers. Atom's there today, ARM not yet really.

Perhaps Intel did define the term microserver, but not the drivers behind it and it's natural existence today. Just look at current cost and power requirements in server infrastructure, the shrinking bang for the buck being realized by purchasing the latest, highest-power server processors for current workloads, and the increasing availability of SOC-based processors with enhanced IO and various heterogeneous compute engines. Intelligent scaling is sorely needed that makes use of these growing and different features, not just brute force as has been the mantra in the past.

Intel is far behind ARM in the mobile and tablets processor demands, will Avoton be able to find its place in mobiles and tablets?

There's no question Intel is sdoing everything it can to get into this market as aggressively as possible. I am not sure they will be limited to an eight-core offering though. It seems to me that their product lineup will span as far and wide as they can possibly get it to. They won't be giving up their edge in traditional x86 platforms anytime soon either.

Not both Xeon and Atom

With Xeon and Atom power levels so similar (if read correctly) I doubt it makes sense to keep both lines for servers. I'd assume the Xeon would have vastly better performance.
