just an off topic question, personally I really dont see very many servers running on AMD processors, (AMD All the Way!) just wondering if you notice any real difference between Intel and the AMD's performance while using them server wise? advantages disadvantages etc.
I don't really see much of a performance difference between the two as long as the AMD processors have the Barton core and 512 cache. A year or so ago I would not have used the AMD processor for a production server because of the heat they were dissipating. AMD must have overcome some of the heat problems because the AMD processors we are using now are running at about 96 degrees. That's much cooler than earlier ones. Also the cost is quite a bit less compared to Intel's Xeon. No problems so far!
