Leave it to the folks at Apple; they certainly know how to make the evening news.
As today’s processing platforms assume more and more architecture functions of data centers in a predominantly software-defined networking scenario, questions arise regarding how best to maximize networking abilities of processors, as well as maximizing potential savings in power, heat and hardware costs.
It wouldn’t be the first time that Intel has surprised us with such news, as back in late May the x86 giant announced an agreement with Rockchip to jointly manufacturer an Intel x86-based mobile Solution on Chip
