In advance of a major showdown with Intel over the next generation of computing that will pit AMD’s “Shanghai” processor architecture against a rival “Nehalem” offering that Intel has begun touting this week in earnest, AMD is letting it be known that it plans to create its first server platform, code-
named Fiorano, for its processors in 2009. Obviously, Intel currently holds the upper hand, but as the noise level around Shanghai continues to build, it’s clear that AMD is not ready to roll over and play dead just yet, especially when you consider the fact that AMD is now partnering with IBM to
build 22-nanometer technologies.
I have never try AMD server. Maybe 2009, or later.
