CEO: ARM Will Challenge Intel Servers in 2014

As Intel pushes to expand its technology into the rapidly growing mobile

device space, officials with ARM Holdings,

whose chip designs dominate the smartphone market, say they plan to take on

Intel in the server arena.

In

an interview with Bloomberg

News Dec. 13, ARM CEO

Warren East said that his company’s chip designs will help drive up the energy

efficiency of data center systems and that server makers “are actively

considering ARM architectures.”

However,

that will take time, East said, predicting that ARM

won’t start to eat into Intel’s dominant server market share until 2014 or so.

Intel currently owns more than 90 percent of the overall server market.

“We

don’t want to raise expectations that next year there are going to be a lot of ARM

servers,” he said. “Of course, there aren’t.”
