    Not their market.

      That's how they already are.

      Ya, that's not a thing.

        I agree 100%.

        These announcement for vaporware do little to increase consumer confidence.

        They need to attack the desktop, where it's easier to execute and prove the concept.

        Release a 4 or 6 core Ampere that wows, then follow it up with higher core count upmarket variants.

        Once you get people believing, then attack the high profit market,

        How do you announce a "3nm CPU with up to 256 cores and supporting 12 channel DDR5 memory" when you can't even get your current product on the shelves?

          The main thing Ampere needs to do to remain relevant is to switch to RISC-V.

          I hope they're not dumb, and their roadmap chips are actually RVA23.

            I would love to see a Pi like device with at least 4 proper big cores (X4 is the current ones?) at a reasonable price or a ITX mobo with such a chip already present.

              It seems that GIGABYTE are selling AmpereOne servers: https://www.gigabyte.com/Enterprise/ARM-Server?fid=2494

              Supermicro have them as "COMMING SOON": https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/megadc

              My concern with Ampere1 is that the memory bandwidth per core seems to be too low. From looking into the GCC and LLVM source code, it appears that Ampere1 doesn't support SVE which, if true, will be pity.

                32 core ARM System made by AMD will be cool

                  AMD is ramping x86_64 cores too quickly, intel too the gen after sierra forest when e core only might be good, for ampere to skate by on simply "more core new node". To compete with the more entrenched and better x86 this announcement should have been for 512 good cores minimum. By the time these get released x86 will be way ahead, 256 arm cores only competes well with current gen on some workloads.
