ZD Net reports ARM intends to capture a slice of the PC and server processor market by 2015:
ARM Holdings, owns the mobile market when it comes to licensing chip architecture, but by 2015 the company expects to have a foothold in the PC and server market.
That’s the primary takeaway from ARM Holdings earnings conference call earlier this week. ARM is basically an intellectual property licensing company. As a result, it’s a dominant processing company without actually manufacturing a processor. Instead, companies like Nvidia do the heavy lifting. Nevertheless, the message is clear: ARM Holdings is deadly serious about being a PC and server player and at CES 2011 some of the pieces fell into place. And why not? Microsoft is supporting ARM. Nvidia’s Tegra chipset is landing server design wins.
