HP Brings AMD Chips to Moonshot Servers

Gary Campbell, infrastructure technology strategy CTO for HP, shows off a Moonshot server module powered by AMD chips that will begin shipping next year. HP's first energy-efficient dense server cartridges were armed with Intel Atom chips, but AMD- and ARM-based systems will start appearing in 2014.
