Posted on Saturday, March 05 2011 @ 03:55:59 CET by

Intel's server business doesn't have anything to fear from ARM, according to Kirk Skaugen, general manager of the chip giant's data center unit. Intel acknowledges ARM may gain some ground in the laptop market but doubts the architecture will become a success in the server market.
Like mobile devices, power efficiency is a key concern for servers. Businesses keenly watch how to minimize the power they use per unit of computing power.

But Intel is convinced that businesses won't be interested in ARM servers, as it admits that its own efforts to put Atom systems-on-a-chip on servers was met with disappointment. States Mr. Skaugen:
