SAN FRANCISCO—Vendors of ARM-based server-class microprocessors will begin to gain traction with their newest designs next year following years of ecosystem development, according to a new report by International Data Corp. (IDC).
The long-foreseen forecasted shift in fortunes for ARM-based server processors is expected to come after a period of muted growth for combined ARM- and X86-based server processors, which are projected to log a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.2% between 2015 and 2020, according to the report.
"With an expanding system total available market, expanding workload base, and emerging competition, the next five years of the server-class microprocessor market will see more system- and workload-specific designs, moderation in pricing, and some modest change in market share," said Shane Rau, research vice president for computing semiconductors at IDC, in a statement.
