Intel Releases New Low-Power 64-bit 6-Watt Atom Chip For Servers

In case you didn't know, Intel just recently announced over a week ago a new server chip for the high-powered server/storage/network market who wants both power and flexibility of an Intel chip but with lower running costs.

>http://newsroom.intel.com/community/...lass-processor

It is a 6-watt, 64-bit server chip based on the Atom called the S1200. The idea is to allow firms to build 'microservers' so that in their warehouses/data farms, they don't have to use as much power as conventional servers as well as being able to pack more servers/storage/networking devices and power into smaller spaces.

Could this product end up in a Mac Mini Server in future?

I would hope a PC mini server as well!

Yes but it's unlikely because Apple's server ambitions are pretty weak. That being said there's nothing wrong with building a mini server based on this that allows us to centralize storage and file sharing.
