Hardware, Embedded Systems The gloves are off in the ARM vs. Intel battle, now that Marvell has announced a full-blown ARM server chip for cloud datacenters. The 40nm, 1.6GHz, quad-core ARMADA XP is aimed squarely at a market segment that Intel has seen strong performance from in the past few quarters, and Marvell's co-founder, Weili Dai, is clear about that, saying, "Marvell's introduction of a powerful solution for enterprise-class cloud computing applications is a very important milestone in the mobile Internet revolution."

32 bit server chips would really be useful for quite a few server applications. For example the way Google uses very many computers with not that much memory and a couple of HDD's, working together. Also for small home servers.

I would LOVE to find a Mini-ITX mobo with an ARM processor and 4 SATA ports (for one of these: http://usa.chenbro.com/corporatesite/products_detail.php?sku=78).
