He wants to get beyond the PC business and into datacenters and HPC. It’s a bold and risky move, and may be his best chance of making the change happen.
ARM-based CPU-GPU processor designed for mobile devices makes HPC debut.
With the race to crack the exaflops barrier underway, one project is looking to use some of the least powerful processors in the industry.
As has become apparent to nearly everyone in the HPC community, life beyond petascale supercomputing will be power limited. Many efforts around the world are now underway to address this problem, both by commercial interests and researchers. One such effort that brings both into play is the Mont-Blanc research project at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, which is looking to exploit ARM processors, GPUs, and other off-the-shelf technologies to produce radically energy-efficient supercomputers.
SpiNNaker project will employ ARM processors to map virtual brain.

Chipmaker unveils roadmap with Atom server chip.
Will ARM’s ubiquity in the consumer market doom the x86 in HPC?
The dominance of the x86 in desktop machines, servers, and supercomputers will soon be challenged by the ARM microprocessor. That according Tudor Brown, ARM Holdings’ president and co-founder, who this week took a few shots at the x86 dynasty. Brown’s comments and recent events suggest future ARM-based processors could form a credible threat to high-end CPUs made by AMD and Intel.
The days of PCI-attached discrete GPUs are numbered.
