Default Oracle kills AMD Opteron on Sun iron

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/05...ikes_opterons/

Quote:
Oracle is abandoning AMD's Opteron processors, according to a person familiar with the company's server plans.

The new owner of Sun Microsystems will not use the new Opteron 6100 and impending Opteron 4100 processors in future Sun Fire x64 servers, and all existing Opteron servers will be discontinued.

Thus ends an Opteron era that began with an impressive bang back in 2003 when IBM and then Sun enthusiastically embraced the Opteron because — at the time — Intel's 32-bit, frontside-bussed Xeons were just plain awful.
