    HAYYYYY yahoo news about ARM's worthless Datacenter Quest


    Challenges and uncertainty
    Between exploiting a massive number of low-power processors, sustaining performance, and programming every aspect of the initiative, it's safe to say the challenges are plentiful for ARM to transition into the server space by 2014. But the greatest challenge of them all is Intel. By the time ARM is ready for prime time, Intel's Atom chip will be fabricated on 14-nanometer transistors, essentially closing the power gap between itself and ARM's latest and greatest. At that time, ARM chips are expected to be fabricated on a larger, less power efficient 20-nanometer node.

    If low-power server clusters become the de facto standard for cloud-based data centers, Intel has a huge lead on ARM, as nearly everything in the data center has been developed in favor of Intel's architecture – which commands a 90% market share in the server market. When you also consider Intel's fabrication process will be a solid generation ahead of ARM's fabrication partner, Taiwan Semiconductor, there won't be much reason left to convince businesses to deploy ARM server farms. Despite the efforts being made, the practicality of implementing ARM-based architecture in the data center doesn't appear to be all that practical
