Re: if arm was good for servers
>Linux has arm for probably 15 or more years now.
Mostly for embedded devices and very successful, your router, set-top box, NAS etc
Now that ARM has 64-bit support, we are starting to consider it for the server, however, for that, you need to upscale massively ... more cores, fast interconnects etc EXACTLY this is coming.
AMD just launched Zen, ARM licensees are beefing up their server kit - this is starting to look bad for Intel ... I bought a 5820k some years ago, the most recent iteration for that CPU (6800K) gives me 5% more THEORETICAL power, WTF are you smoking, Intel ? This means, ARM and AMD have caught up ... last time AMD caught up, Intel was in the shit for some years, this time, however, they have not JUST one major competitor on x86_64, BUT a whole bunch of others on ARM64.
Customers like me are miffed, because of the stagnation ...
Besides, more on topic of this article ... generic drivers suck performance wise, just saying ...
