    Interesting stuff.

    Now, I wonder if Intel will go ARM or weather their vision will counter the rise of ARM.......

    What more interesting is that AMD will have the first 64 bit ARM server SOC out,and its taking over from Jaguar in only a year too.

    They had XScale after buying StrongARM from DEC, didn't find much value and sold it to Marvell in 2006. Still hold a full licence...

    I seriously doubt they would "go ARM" for an instruction set in any major product, x86-64 has a huge compatibility bonus that's still hard to ignore and given that Atom has matched the ARM licensees efforts on power characteristics it's not likely Intel will see the need to change their main instruction set.

    ARM based chips are still lacking in many areas and won't be universally replacing beefy Xeon/Opteron CPUs anytime soon, many workloads would show little or no advantage from a highly parallel many-wimpy-core approach and some are very definitely not suited. Also the argument of big iron virtualisation vs micro-servers is far from settled, virtualisation carries a major advantage in that large CPU power is available if needed whereas micro-servers must always operate with a restricting CPU.
