InfoWorld: Processor maker ARM today unveiled its new ARMv8 chips, which are based on 64-bit architecture. Until now, ARM has concentrated on the mobile market, making low-power processors for tablets and smartphones. The new 64-bit chips will allow the company's chips to be used in enterprise servers and workstations, where Intel and AMD control the majority of the market.

Initially, ARM's RISC-based chips will only be able to support systems running Linux. However, Microsoft's upcoming Windows 8 Metro interface will support apps that run on ARM technology.
