Calxeda May Yet Rise From The Ashes Like The Phoenix

The Phoenix was a mythical bird, possibly the first zombie, which burned but flew again.“the Thunder X SoC is a 28 nm device with up to 48 custom 64 bit ARMv8 cores at 2.5 GHz, running the whole show at between 20 and 95 W.” So might huge multi-cored ARMed chips for servers. With these specs one could do just about anything. My Beast is shivering, using the same power-consumption to run just 4 cores at that clock-rate.

ARM is too good an idea to have died with Calxeda. At 64-bits and 48 cores and designed for servery, I think this thing will fly.
