If they hit parity with x86 hardware in performance/watt then a game changer.

What is the power consumption running X86? at 40 utilization what is the power usage? If it does not scale down then not significant until approuching 80%. That is why they mentioned 80% by 2014.

You are right in a way but completely wrong in another. it is a chicken and egg problem. No software no sales. Provide x86 support at = or better performance/watt and its off to the races.

There already are light options out there, such as node.js and G-WAN.

Whoa, what's bitten you? Flash running your PC hot has exactly NOTHING to do with this. Flash is just a piece of junk that needs to die. Even Adobe realizes this--now if only web developers did too... Recompiling source to native code is the most efficient thing to do, and that's what I was talking about. Emulating a different instruction set in real time is not efficient.

You are VERY right. It is just a matter of time before a good software development team out there to kick out a layer or 3. So that server apps finally run light and on very low power.

Yeah, and this is exactly the reason why THIS happens: When I run FLASH (= Adobe misery) my PC almost gets on fire, all due to the damned protocol and layer stackers out there. Why don't you software programmers not do a proper job?

BTW, ARM is quick to admit there is a wealth of 64-bit server software that still has hooks to the x86.

FYI, Here's some analysis that was apparently cut from the current version of the story: “It’s very possible this could be useful technology in a 2014 time frame,” said Kevin Krewell, senior analyst with market watcher Linley Group (Mountain View, Calif.). Startup Transitive Technology helped Apple and SGI transition to the x86 from PowerPC and MIPS respectively before Transitive was acquired by IBM. Emulation “could be used for migration, but not as a long term strategy,” Krewell said. Emulation is typically used when the new architecture has higher performance than the old one, which is not the case—at least today--moving from the x86 to ARM. “By the time this software is out in 2014 you could see chips using ARM’s V8, 64-bit architecture,” Krewell noted. “That said, you will lose some of the power efficiency of ARM when doing emulation,” Krewell said. “Once you lose 20 or more percent of efficiency, you put ARM on par with an x86,” he added.

Fergie 65; on performance will lesson under emulation; exactly. If you mean by binary that the performane hit will lesson for applications recomplied for 'specific x86 instruction calls" exactly. Hardware substitution learning always starts addressing core instruction translation equired for target application. Mike Bruzzone Camp Marketing

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.
