One of the most significant - and understated - transitions in enterprise computing in recent years has been the number of companies building and deploying their own hardware. A number of high-profile firms have designed custom solutions using a mixture of FPGAs, custom ASICs, and conventional x86 CPUs in customized server deployments. Some firms, like Amazon, have taken out an ARM license and deployed that company’s silicon, seeking efficiency advantages or cost savings in specific markets. But according to Axios, Adobe is actually mulling over designing its own CPUs or at least positioning itself to write software much closer to the silicon its code runs on.
