Exactly, and as long as Intel is vigilant, these minor "paradigms" won't affect it. Remember initial cost is not an issue in servers rather than the total cost of ownership (TCO). Small changes here and there, Intel can easily catch up to them.
ARM had the "power" advantage which was a MAJOR paradigm change which could have disrupted the server market. Intel has effectively neutralized this.
Its OVER and OUT. you can bark up the ARM server tree for as long as you like.
As long as Intel is vigilant, No one can encroach on servers. You need another paradigm shift in servers/cloud computing to dethrone intel. ARM had the "power" paradigm in its favor.
We can safely say that the ARM threat is OVER. DONE. FINITO.
publish Charlie Hebdo cartoons in every newspaper in the world.
Total domination in Servers and PC's. The ARM threat is DONE. Its clear sailing for this juggernaut of a monopoly.
Don't need redundancy in the workforce IMO.
pays off. Eat your heart out you Faux News satan worshipers.
All this bickering about which one is better can easily be solved by consolidation. The merged Nvidia/AMD entity will have complete control over discrete graphics.
Tegra never made any $$ for NVidia in tablets and smartphones. In fact huge losses were the result of Nvidia's gaga foray into mobile. Same with cars.
But then again, this company is at a dead end with its bread and butter discrete graphics shrinking rapidly, it has to try to throw some sheet at the wall and hope it sticks.
Intel is 2nd chip supplier to the tablet market. Qualcomm is 3rd, Nvidia is nowhere in the top 10. They got their strategy wrong alright!!
There goes AMD's gaming hopes. With Core M, it can be used to play some pretty nifty PC games on your TV.
