You know why your company uses Intel? one of the IT guys is in love with Intel. And basically the only company producing AMD servers is HP, you may be able to find others.
Each one of the IT department managers buy their own systems so lol @ over 30 managers all buying Intels and Suns.
If you weren't so ignorant you'd know business practices arn't based on research done by punk kid overclocker sites (which is the basis for AMD fan clubs) but on company reputation and ability to deliver. It's sad when even Apple thinks AMD can't cut it~ Intel still has over 80% of the market share and net over 20 billion a year in processor sales compared to AMDs what? 2? AMD's stock shares haven't been very stable in the eyes of investors either...
And for your reference, only mathmatical type research use one system for raw processing power...the rest of the world uses clustering and layer 7 content switches to disperse tasks. Processors hit the ceiling a long time ago so now it's all in the chipset (higher bandwidth memory, controllers, etc) and Intel definately has an edge on that one these days.
