    I'll be honest, when I first saw the bottom picture I thought "Wow, thats a huge chip..."'

    I didn't sleep very much last night and that's the excuse I'm sticking to!

    Seems a bit of a content free press release that.

    48 cores, usually that would be for a VM farm which throws up lots of questions, like how much RAM can you plug in, virtualisation support.

    Can't see it turning up on a Raspberry Pi clone any time soon though, so I'm probably out.

    Aren't Arm servers still a niche thing, many have tried before and not been able to make a dent, way too much software reliant on x86 to make it worthwhile.

    It hasn't really been tried in a big way, HP Moonshot blades are the only things that really spring to mind.

    There really isn't a reliance on x86 in the data center though, most software is Linux so already there for ARM, the best hardware you can buy is IBM with a Power CPU.

    Re: Qualcomm unleashes 48-core 10nm FinFET ARM server chips

    Looks great for VM host, just the question is how much it will cost, how much RAM can we attach to and other things.
    But I think it will be reserved for OEMs and there will be no motherboard for DIY to buy.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.
