NVIDIA does not plan to enter the market of microservers

In microservers market is dominated by x86-based solutions (although they were not originally designed for this purpose) and ARM, and the latter and enlisted their weapons to dominate the market with its Cortex-A50 Series of 64 bits , while timidly Intel launched its first official bet that market with their soc Atom for Server S1200 Series , meanwhile APUs AMD Opteron x86 and ready ARM64 and ARM64 Opteron microprocessors . The options presented by the companies mentioned portend a fierce and bloody struggle in that market.

Although many industry analysts expected Nvidia to join battle with their future SoC Denver and microprocessors Boulder (both based on ARM64) confirms that Nvidia itself has no interest in the market microservers therefore points to market denver server high performance computing (HPC), while Boulder market points to general-purpose servers.

The absence of Nvidia in the market for microservers not make this market less competitive than expected, but could be an indication that the opposite, because large companies like Intel, AMD, Samsung, AppliedMicro, Calxeda, Marvell, among others, may not be room for new competitors.
