AMD Celebrates 52% Increase Due to Opteron Sales
SUNNYVALE, Calif. — July 6, 2006 — AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced that sales for the second quarter ended July 2, 2006 are expected to be approximately $1.215 billion – a 52 percent increase compared to the second quarter of 2005 and a nine percent decline compared to the first quarter of 2006. The company’s prior guidance for the second quarter anticipated overall sales to be flat to slightly down seasonally from the first quarter of 2006.
Record AMD Opteron™ processor sales were driven by continued strong demand for single-, dual- and multi-socket configurations for servers and workstations. Sales of entry-level and mainstream mobile and desktop processors were down.

heh, is this should easy the pain of when the new Intel chips hit the market.
the raid issues will keep Opteron in the league, i guess, but desktop-wise i suppose it might be another story.
Computed by a Core 2 Duo E6400 (2.13Ghz @ 3.2Ghz) kept frosty by a Zalman CNPS9700 on an Asus P5W DH Deluxe, fed by 2x 1Gb OCZ PC2-6400 4-4-4-12 @ 1600FSB 1:1 and puked back out by a MSI RX1950Pro.

the RAID issues or only for those system which rely on software RAID, any decent server has dedicated RAID cards, in those systems the Core will have no probs with RAID
