Greetings! Read it between my second and third posts in this thread. That was a show-stoper to me the first time I started to read the article. And here we disagree. One thing is saying AMD sold all its production, another is to say it sold at price X (free competitive market) or Y (Intel orchestrasted market). But it is. Otherwise there wouldnt be any agressive price cuts. In 2006 Opteron was the server to get for most tasks; For some tasks Opterons are still better than Xeons. PS: For the record, my system has a P5B Deluxe motherboard, E4300 CPU and a nVidia 8800, so none of those pieces are AMD. Dont accuse me of AMDroidism.
