A report in Taiwanese wire Digitimes said that ARM has made serious attempts to invade the server business but hasn’t succeeding in storming the Intel fortress.
And with Intel having an 80 percent share in the PC market, shareholders in the chip giant believe that despite its appalling performance in the mobile space, it will continue to make high margins from its server chip offerings.
AMD is waiting in the wings but doesn’t have a great deal of traction in the server business, the report claims.
Both ARM and Intel hope to make vast profits by being in the vanguard in offering products that will leverage the expected boom in the “internet of things”.
Intel and ARM are relying on cloud based apps to make everything work together. These things are only a tiny fraction of the internet of things, however, and it’s hard to see either company having much of a share in the expected bonanza.
