Submission + - Quad-core ARM Powered Servers showcased by Marvell (

Charbax writes: At the ARM Technology Conference in Santa Clara, Marvell just unveiled in this video the initial sampling of the Quad-Core Armada XP ARM Processor for ARM Powered servers, to power cloud computing, networking, storage and mobile infrastructure. Marvell claims this is perfect for powering Web 2.0, cloud computing and video hosting sites like Facebook and YouTube and they have many secret OEM and ODM partners seriously working on this. The advantages being it provides very good performance (benchmarks still to be released..) at a fraction of the power consumption (compared to x86), very competitive price. Power consumption of the server park can be cut to a quarter, the density of the server infrastructure can be increased. Is Intel right now in a huge panic?

A failure will not appear until a unit has passed final inspection.
