siliconbits writes: Boyd Davis, General Manager of server marketing at Intel, confirmed yesterday during a press dinner in London that the firm would be launching its first sub-10 watt Atom-based server chip in the second half of 2012. The second half of 2012 may turn out to be one fraught with danger for Intel as the first products based on the ARM Cortex-A15 technology, some of them targeting the very low end of the server markets, are expected to be launched then with Calxeda, Nufront, Marvell and Fujitsu amongst the likely candidates. The 10 watt Atom server chip would almost certainly be a refined version of the N570, possibly with a much finer manufacturing process, which will allow Intel to reduce the die size while significantly boosting the clock speed and keeping the overall TDP in check.
