Re: Project Denver becomes Ampere
The ARM architcture is now widely supported and there is a good range of ARMv8 based processors with different integration and performance options that are very competitive on paper with Intel processors. The introduction of the Xeon Scaleable processors and Xeon D Skylake processors should however significantly increase the performance of NFV based solutions on these platforms. So far Intel has continued to dominate these platforms but there are a growing of companies with ARM based platforms and it will be interesting to see which platforms and processors their customers choose,

Re: Project Denver becomes Ampere
I read about Ampere and Renee James on Bloomberg (or similar type website). Interesting play.

Out of curiosity, how would you assess progress on ARM servers?

Fwiw, I'm hearing quite a bit about Skylake from vendors doing NFV performance tests and such like.

Project Denver becomes Ampere
The AppliedMicro processor business that was aquired by Macom with the rest of the company and then sold to the Carlyle Group has resurfaced as Ampere. Renee James, ex. Intel, is building a new business taking the AppliedMicro X-Gene 3 processor into production, as the eMAG processor, and building a large development team. For the company to succeed it needs to deliver production silicon that meets the original performance targets and show a compelling roadmap for the future.
