AMD und Sun

Das die Zusammenarbeit nicht nur auf der Basis “Ich Geld, du Prozessor” läuft, wird sehr gut in “Sun Shines on AMD’s Opteron” umrissen:

"The standard mode of operation is going to be one of AMD engineers involved in the specific design of AMD processor products. But those engineers will get substantial input from their counterparts at Sun, especially relative to features that influence system design, whether its memory controller capabilities, Hypertransport capabilities of the future or what have you," he said. "We do the design, but based on input from Sun. That's the model."
