going to be the year is going to be the year when AMD will enter this market, here is some coments from Phil Trent Marketing Director for SMI and founder of AMD needs to have a presence in the corporate market.

While Intel is still fighting hard to provide its customers

with its last generation microchips, AMD delivers its CPU in the adequate quantities right after the introduction of the product.
