H-P (HPQ) Moonshot servers featuring AMD's low-power Kyoto CPU will arrive in 2H13. H-P praises AMD's GPU expertise, which it thinks makes Kyoto well-suited for video/graphics-centric tasks. Also arriving in 2H are servers using Intel's (INTC) next-gen Avoton Atom CPUs - the first Moonshot systems use Centerton Atom CPUs. Meanwhile, ARM-based CPUs will be provided by Texas Instruments (TXN - PR), AppliedMicro (AMCC - PR), and Calxeda - H-P talks up the inclusion of a DSP in TI's Keystone ARM processor.

    HP has lead the server industry in shipments for 61 straight quarters (since the 90's). What do leaders do? They re-invent. What requires ten racks today will fit in a single moonshot rack. Energy cost are reduced by 95%, and cost is reduced by 75%. For all of those CIO's out of space or power or cooling in their data center, this is a game changer.

    A good reminder that AMD's competitive advantage lies in their GPU.

    Video over the internet is the HUGE growth area for cloud providers.


    More servers will go into the cloud over the next decade, and significantly less will be sold to corporations.


    AMD is positioned for huge growth.


    Intel is positioned to lose market share to AMD and other companies using ARM architecture to produce server chips.
