Google Ramps Up Chip Design

Would Google be designing their own server chips?  The media is all excited Google would develop ARM servers.  How much better can Google make a two proc server run?

What makes way more sense is Google designing silicon for a high performance fabric that works across 100s/1000s of servers or maybe even 10,000/100,000 servers.  If you look at Partha’s resume you can see he has the background for disaggregation systems and systems that scale.  Like a super computer system.
