In June 2011 after 16 years in AMD they were joined by Jim Mergard (Jim Mergard). two months later, brad Burgess (Brad Burgess) he spent eight years at AMD and three years at Intel .
All this is fueling rumors of a possible expansion of the second largest semiconductor manufacturer in the market of server processors, where Intel dominates. As you know, Samsung is the largest manufacturer of processors based on ARM architecture. In his time, ARM Holdings has announced the creation of chips for the server market and in October 2011 even introduced the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture. However, according to company representatives, such systems will be able to conquer the market not earlier than 2014. Around the same time AppliedMicro announced the creation of a prototype 64-bit chip based on this architecture, and Marvell Technology and Calxeda announced his intention to create a 32-bit chips.
Despite aggressive recruiting policy Samsung, Intel camp continue to remain calm and evaluate competitor with considerable skepticism. There are a number of reasons, first and foremost, low performance server solutions based on ARM architecture and the lack of support from corporate.
Charles king (Charles King). senior analyst at Pund-IT Research. said that many moved to work in Samsung employees have experience in the development of systems on a chip SoC (system-on-a-chip). So talking about a singular focus to the Korean manufacturers on the market for server chips prematurely.
