re: Atom gets first ride in HP's CPU-agnostic server

Intel has the critical mass to force down their margins to whatever it takes to win market share. In this economy, it's tough to be a little guy.

Looked at the Calxeda quad, quad core server card or energy card, 16 A9's, 24Watts. I would like to see someone with insight talk to what runs well on ARM SISP and what runs well on CISP. What is a software bottleneck and what is a hardware bottleneck. Both single user and server farm levels. Can this agnostic approuch from HP support both in the same server cluster parsing out CISP optimized workloads and SISP optimized workloads. How does cload computing change things when the application software is at the server and the results are piped to the user. Does this change the % need of the two. Obvuiosly the lowestcost operation will prevail for most all tasks that can be done with Sisp. Would not more cloud activity tilt the field toward SISP or would it require more Cisp machines? Does virtualisation and othe things untether apps form cisp?

Yes the comparison is based on similar workloads on the two processors, but HP is not commenting on how much memory it uses or any other details of the Gemini chassis or CPU cartridges.

300 concurrent web sessions seem a bit low to me. How much RAM does the server equip? When the comparison is done, is the 150W Xeon powered server run only 300 concurrent web sessions?
