    Faster and cheaper.... that's a worthy business model. Now let's see some revenue! This heated race is going to leave the ARM server folks in the dust?

    ARM servers should be even cheaper plus with better TCO (thanks to faster transitions to new process nodes).

    You have to take into account, that x86 processors are extremely overpriced today. Most expensive x86 CPU cost similary to fully equipped SPARC server or 2x dual socket (4 CPU total) POWER 8 server. It is CPU vs server cost comparison...

    True, but the hardware cost is most of time much less than that of the software infrastructure/ecosystem. ARM is still miles away unfortunately.
