re: ARM signs 64-bit deal with Cavium

So much for MIPS! What is curious is that Cavium decided to license the architecture and implement its own cores - similar to AppliedMicro's X-Gene, although APM has a few years head start on them. This can only be good for the ARM camp with another david arming itself against the Intel goliath. I wonder if cavium is going to stick to its tried and tested sea of wimpy cores like the octeon or will they try to target higher performance.

Pretty good move on ARM's behalf. After 4 years of touting their Quadcore-A9 they realized that it simply does not cut it for Server Applications. A9 will always be memory limited since it is a 32-bit CPU. The question remains: Did they really miss the boat of 64-bit since the train has left the station!!
