naperlou, looks like you called it ahead of its time.  The 2014 iterations of both AMD and Intel should be very interesting.

In a lecture I delivered a while back on the ARM processor to an IEEE group I mentioned the possibilities of ARM based servers based on ARM's then upcoming 64-bit architecture.  AMD and HP were a couple of the compamies that were investigating the possibilities at the time.  This announcement by AMD is very significant.  Intel has had to respond to ARM's method of managing power in a CPU.  Their fourth generation chips have some similar features. 

Servers in a virtualized, cloud environment get somewhere around 50% utilization.  Thus, the ability to use chips that save energy when not in use, but that can respond to new load immediatly, will save large amounts of power.  Considering the size of some of the cloud computing centers, this will be very significant.
