Last week AMD performed an impressive coup-de-data-centre against Intel, acquiring server manufacturer SeaMicro for its intellectual property – of which Intel once sought. Now, in a brave act to save face, Intel has said that it wasn’t even interested in SeaMicro in the first place.

I'm not convinced Intel is trying to save face. Even in the article, the spokeswoman for Intel states, "We believe we have a compelling solution; we believe we have a great road map. We just didn’t feel that the solution that SeaMicro was offering was superior" which sounds plausible coming from Intel.

If that was the case, why was Seamicro not already a part of Intel, doh!

It feels like what happens everyday at school, on a much larger scale.

Amd is not doing bad in the server market in fact bulldozer is an excellent chip for servers.

Just because you cant afford a 2600k, dont go telling other people they dont want/need one.

I believe the fact of the matter is, that if intel wanted SeaMicro, it would probably already own them. It isn't like AMD has more money to throw at them.

/edit

I suppose it could be that intel was already making money of of them so why buy them out, but even then seriously. What percentage of Intel's revenue did SeaMicro bring .
