Is there a specific location you are interested in?
Most individuals/company's are familiar with Intel (branding) which is why you will see a lot of Intel server offerings as supposed to AMD, however there are providers who offer both and depending on the location you're interested in I can recommend a few.
I've been working almost specifically with Opterons long-term on UNIX, Linux, and Windows server boxes over the past several years. They appear to be a bit more popular in the game server circuit, most likely because of the company's roots, but Opterons are just as efficient for any other processing tasks. I can vouch for their long-term stability and performance in high processor usage server installations.
hello everyone...can someone please point me to a few dedicated providers which provide AMD cpu's...athlon or opty's....
most of the guys i see in the offers forum have only intel.unfair competition by intel ?...from what i have heard,opty's are pretty good...what do you guys think about that
Is there any reason you're looking for an AMD CPU? A lot of providers tend to stick with Intel. However, if you look around the offers section you should be able to find some providers that offer AMD servers.
well AMD's are really good, i m not sure about the benchmark results but performance wise personally my opinion they are good. Its just the intel buzz. And yes as someone said $$$wise they are cheaper too.
