By the way Oracle have its own way of getting the server CPUS, it aquired SUN micro systems long ago

This is really confusing. Why Oracle wants to be away from supporting Intel? Is there any competetive processors from ARM which can replace the Intel so soon?

Warren, A quad core Cortex-A9 already beats a mobile Core2Duo chip in performance. http://gigaom.com/mobile/nvidia-tegra-3-benchmark-inte/ So I wouldnt be surprised if a 100-core Cortex A15 beats a Sparc in raw performance in a few years.

Please, please tell me you meant "keep SPARC performance-per-Watt better than ARM."

I wonder if it is a refocusing of their efforts, not so much an attack on HP or Intel (but given the history between HP and Oracle it might considered a "two for one" deal).

Its simple Oracle can make more profit by selling you oracle running on their own hardware and ties you in with their support contracts. What would be interesting is if Oracle does its own arm chip with the current interconnects (same as sparc) but with an A15 core (optimised for performance). Becuase the question is for how much longer can Oracle keep Sparc performance better than ARM ? Cortex A9 optimised for performance is hitting 2.2GHz with reasonable performance (between Atom and I3) Most linux distros have or are busily working on arm ports. Will have enterprise linux version for arm within 12 -18 months.

I do not get this. Why should a software company like Oracle flexing muscle here. I have always thought this is a win win. Intel is such a colossus that I doubt if this makes any impact. They better watch

Itanium is not doing great...I am still waiting for market research numbers...but Oracle could hurt itself as much as Itanium with this move methinks

With 1 less supporter, what would be the best option to Intel?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
