Irony is one of those things that you really have to savor. We are sure that both Intel and AMD are savoring the irony of AMD launching a new line of servers running Intel Xeon E3-1260L CPUs. The new server will be sold by AMD’s wholly owned subsidiary Seamicro, but we all know that AMD is the name behind it all. AMD bought Seamicro last year primarily for their interconnect technology, but we are also sure their rising server business was a bonus.

124AMD may have hit something of a snag in their HPC department. It seems that Intel has bought out Cray’s interconnect business. Now if you are wondering how that affects AMD then it might interest you to know that Cray (a maker of super computers) has had a fondness for AMD since the introduction of the Opteron. Now with Intel grabbing up the Interconnect side of the house (and 74 Cray engineers) things could change quickly.
