The lack of iGPU means they can't put it into a phone.

Now that's some real logic.

Actually i can't understand how big it is. Is as big as a thread ripper?

The Ampere Altra processor delivers 80 cores up to 210 W
Doesn't seem small.

I'm curious. How much?

These are designed to compete against Intel/AMD and Amazon in the cloud server space - not go into phones. I'm more curious to see how this stacks up against a Graviton 2 than Intel chips though. Amazon seems confident that the G2 is a much better investment for AWS than competing solutions.

Win 10 ARM exists. I can see the revolution is closing-in. Nothing lasts forever...not even x86.

Maybe he's asking about the actual physical size of the chip, as threadripper is massive.

Does 210W seem small to you? I guess it gotta be around normal CPU size or even bigger to get rid of that heat. At least that how I assume it.

Yes, it does but more importantly for this chip's intended market, Linux for ARM exists also. According to their site, that is the only OS they support : https://developer.amperecomputing.com/resources/
