Inteliltä 8-ytiminen Atom servereihin

The first big news is that the new chip is called Avadon or Abadon, accents and scratchy international phone calls don’t give exact spelling, but it sounds really like that. In any case, it is the new 8-core 22nm Atom aimed at servers. According to insiders, people shouldn’t expect to see this beastie until late 2013, there is no silicon floating right now, if it even exists.

In the end, we don’t think this chip will matter. It looks to all the world like a panicked reaction to ARM, a classic solution in search of a problem. It is far too late, more than a year after the first solid competition ships, and a year after the first ARMv8 chips are shown off.

Intel on joutunut monen rintaman sotaan. Arm haastaa Intelin, ja toisaalta kiinalaiset ovat edistyneet yllättävän nopeasti superprosessorisuunnitelmissaan.
