AMD "Advanced Micro Devices has hired JPMorgan Chase & Co to explore options, which could include a potential sale, as the chipmaker struggles to find a role in an industry increasingly focused on mobile and away from traditional PCs, according to three sources familiar with the situation." Woah. Bad news for competition in the x86 space.

Actually, where I see interest in the enterprise for ARM is in the "Just enough hardware" segment. Sure a quad core is cheap. But a room full of them draws a lot of power and requires a lot of cooling. There are plenty of cases where a server is needed but anything x86 you would buy is likely overkill. I don't see ARM replacing x86, but supplementing it.
