EM64T Server Roundup

@ 2004/11/08
When AMD announced its Opteron processor and 8000-series chipsets over year ago it seemed to be taking a huge gamble by offering the server market simultaneous 32 and 64bit processing. However, it looks to have paid off as in the understatement of the year, Intel announced its EM64T (extended memory 64 technology) confirming that AMD’s hunch was right all along. Battle looks set for the enterprise server market as AMD has had a full year head start over Intel and hasn’t been idle either. Most blue-chip vendors including IBM and HP now offer dual- and quad-Opteron servers finally making AMD a serious alterative to Intel.
