    Considering this is a server product, and the only 8-core DDR4 64-bit ARM system I'm aware of (that isn't using the big.LITTLE architecture) the price point is fair.

    Quad-core with DDR3, like Harlequin says; as the article states, the promised eight-core DDR4 version is nowhere to be seen.

    not really any other 64 bit ARM server cpu`s in the wild atm are there let alone with octo core or ddr4 (in fact - not many DDR4 based anything at all)

    Haha what I meant to say is "for an 8 core 64-bit blah blah blah, the price point is fair". Meaning, if this were an 8 core, this would be a fair price point. I haven't heard of any other company even intending to make an 8-core model.
