Intel moves towards sub 10W Atom servers

Intel is anticipating a move towards low-power microservers, and has announced a roadmap for its 2012 Atom range of CPUs that includes some sub 10W models. This is widely seen as a response to announcements from companies such as Calxeda, and a move by large internet groups such as Google and Facebook towards massively parallel low power solutions, more frequently ARM based.
