ARM servers, with their low power requirements, have long been moving into server rooms and even are starting to march into the data center. While many ARM vendors — such as Applied Micro Circuits, Advanced Micro Devices and Cavium — have been pushing this trend, one major ARM manufacturer, Qualcomm with its Snapdragon designs, had stayed out of the server market. Until today.
According to various news reports, Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf has announced that the company would soon be offering ARM server CPUs.
During this analyst day announcement, Qualcomm did not answer such fundamental questions as: How many cores, how fast, how much, and when? We'll need to wait on those answers.
