Re: moonshot? x86 is Proprietary!
Hi Alison, I can't comment directly for the Moonshot team but I believe on the Caldera front the target was their upcoming 64bit update rather than anything shipping so would have been tricky.
The ARM based TI solution was announced as in the labs for testing at Discover. Its primarily focused on DSP workloads. If you look at those signed up to Pathfinder on HP.com you can see ARM licensees such as Applied Micro and Cavium. We've announced Intel and AMD x86 solutions as well because Moonshot is workload centric rather than general purpose, so the intent is to have a broad ecosystem of x86, ARM and other solutions to give the right solution to a number of tasks. If your particular interest is ARM then there will be multiple ARM options don't worry (and with AMD and NVIDIA being on Pathfinder that may already be two more large and established companies).
I don't think you'll find a wider ecosystem of SoCs anywhere :). Hope this helps change your mind on HP here. Cheers, Alex
