    Sounds like the best decision AMD has made in years.

    Buy in a company with good people, good tech, (good patents?) + good products and let them continue being a success.

    Market share is for the birds. Look at Apple, they certainly don't have the 'market share' when it comes to computers , and arguably they don't have the 'market share' when it comes to smart phones... but they've not just got a string market share when it comes to profit, they've got the lions share!

    In super scale computer area AMD are already doing okay I'd imagine, and keeping SeaMicro able to sell to more people is only going to get them more profit rather than less profit.

    If SeaMicro dropped intel they'd sell less machines as customers would be served elsewhere.

    ...And in other news Satan is skating to work, and there are reports that scientists in the US have created a new breed of Sus Scrofa Domestica which has wings.

    Good news for AMD as if they canned the intel CPUs they would lose customers in a small market.

    A smart decision by AMD. Although, i don't doubt that the sales folk will be prodded to push the AMD units, there will still be those customers that demand intel. Why walk away from perfectly good Profit?

    If that thread title had been anywhere else I would have thought it was a joke.

    I hope it pays off for AMD.

    Probably the threat of more anti-trust lawsuits. Anyway, after the last one Intel and AMD are all chummy, remember? They made a 5-year cross-licensing agreement.
