2014? So many companies are already aiming at this market with multi core ARM chipsets. Why not go and buy one of them?

It's a hot emerging market and a lot of ARM SoC makers want a piece of it including Nvidia, Samsung and newcomers such as Calxeda and Applied Micro.

It has great margins and with Samsung scale, they can compete with anyone. It is also good that Intel sees competitions.

EE Times had a scoop on this a few months ago, detailing how Samsung is building an ARM server CPU team in Austin. See http://confidential.eetimes.com/news-updates/4236448/Samsung--Huawei-Pursue-Low-Power-Servers

This better be the 64-bit architecture as the ARM 32-bit Cortex family (A9/A15) simply won't cut it.

ARM 32-bit is OK for some limited apps, but yeah for the long haul they want the new V8 64-bit architecture and it is coming in 2013 from Applied, Nvidia and probably others

What a joke! Have you ever tried one of the ARM netbooks? They are really sad! Extremely poor performance. Now they are going to try servers? Good luck with that :) lol

They will need newer processors here. The mobile processors will not cut it.

This will be an interesting battle to watch - Samsung vs. Intel mano-a-mano. No longer the little guys trying to land a smooth pebble between Intel's eyes - this is a giant taking on another - both with deep pockets, their own fabs and Samsung has access to technology that Intel does not - namely DRAM, Flash etc. I wonder how long it is going to take Samsung to come out with a part. Do they have an architecture license or are they just using ARM's cores.

Intel has research partnership and joint fab with Micron. And Intel has dabbled with flash. So they have these hand in DRAM & flash,

Samuel.Schooler, ARM processors scale horizontally very well and they are cheaper per computing hour. I'm certain we're going to have 1U, 100+ 64bit core systems that are 90 percent more energy efficient in 2K14.

I'm curious where your optimism comes from. for instance, are you assuming some kind of breakthrough in cache effectiveness, or do you have some "server" workload which is not IO-intensive? the classic example of cache-friendly workloads is, of course, GPUs, but surely that's not the direction you're thinking. current arm systems are moderately hobbled by their low-power, low-width memory systems, even simply 4-core versions. it's hard to imagine how one could expect to put 25x more compute on chip without requiring an unreasonably wide memory system.

These days, common practice of Licensing Enterprise SW for Servers is cost-per/core basis. ARM throughput is less than Intel throughput, on per/core basis. That means, we need more ARM cores for same job, thus increasing SW cost. Cost-Per/Cycle model also not uniform, because, Intel processors do more operations per cycle than ARM. May be Cost-Per/GFLOP is slightly better? Is an NVIDIA's Fermi 512-core GPU treated as 1-core, or, god-forbid, 512-core? With Server HW changing from simple CPU core-count model towards custom-processors or GPU, these licensing models may also be changing.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
