Samsung (SSNLF.PK) plans to introduce an ARM-based (ARMH) server CPU, the Seoul Economic Daily reports. There has already been speculation on this front due to Samsung's poaching of AMD talent. If true, Samsung would enter a budding market featuring Marvell, Applied Micro, and H-P partner Calxeda. Software support for ARM server CPUs is limited, but many are intrigued by their potential power and density advantages over Intel/AMD alternatives for Web applications. (Intel Centurion)
