ARM was right, they can steal server rooms from under the noses of AMD and Intel

With Calxeda and Applied Micro showing off ARM64 based servers at Computex this year, in addition to the existing products coming from Marvell and Dell, DigiTimes prediction that 64bit ARM processors will quickly grow in popularity seems to be based in fact.  It was not too long ago that many thought that ARM was fooling themselves if they thought they could take server space from AMD and Intel but it looks like they were right to develop server chips.  With low power usage becoming more popular than processor overkill and modularity growing in importance ARM seems poised to perform far beyond expectations.  Expect to see a lot more new on ARM64 processors and products over the coming months.

"Although Intel platforms are still the mainstream in the server industry, since 64-bit products have a broader range of applications, and ARM has been aggressively promoting related products, sources from the server industry expect more 64-bit ARM-based products to appear in the market between the end of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014."

With the right on die cpu interconnect fabric, ARM holdings(for the IP revenue), or AMD, Nivida, and others could with ARM 64, create an entire farm on a chip, to rival x86 on the PC/laptop! AMD and Nvidia could have with ARM 64, A whole CPU/GPU asymmetric multiprocessing computing platform on a chip built around their GPUs and ARM 64 CPUs, and AMD could throw some of its x86 IP into the mix, and give some competition against Intel's Xeon phi, AMD could use some of its SeaMicro IP to achieve this! This is the next level of computing, whole computing clusters on a chip! Big Bucks Apple, probably already has something loke this, in the works, considering what it has done with its ARM instruction set license and its in house development team!
