The news confirms previous speculation stemming from Google’s acquisition of Agnilux and a recent job advertisement posted by Microsoft. East said that the current architecture, designed for client-side computing, can also be used in server applications.”

ARM is in the news again and this time they have their sites set on the server room. AMD and Intel are both firmly entrenched but this attack on their market share is coming from their flank. The race to lower power consumption is on and ION, Neo and Atom are certainly proof of this. VIA has never made much in the way of inroads into the server market even though their Nano and C7 lines have always had fairly low power consumption so ARM is up against a tough opponent. However, VIA never offered a low power quad core CPU running at 2GHz which is what the ARM A9 is. Drop by Slashdot to read up on the next frontier that ARM plans to conquer.
