LOL it's funny when amd tries acting like a serious, big company. Maybe if they actually had oem deals and workstation deals and server deals people would look at them as an actual player in the market. Right now it's just chips for the overclocking obsessed game players and generally weird linux users.

I don't think this is AMD throwing their weight around. A lot of companies keep tight control over their copyrights because of liability. They (companies) just don't want to be misrepresented. Free publicity can be risky publicity.
Catheter and Caffeine IV are in place. Let's PLAY.

LOL it's funny when you try acting like a buyer for an OEM. It's funny when you think people here care about how many workstation/server deals AMD have.
For 300 bucks, you get a 2" binder and CD with participating companies licensed logo's for general use in vector format.
You will not find the product listed. but if you call they can verify cost and logo's offered. The product is called "smart logo". AMD and Intel are both participating companies that license their logo's thru smart designs.
OK, OK, I get it now it's a big win for AMD. Please save the link for future posts so when an Intel Fan posts that AMD can't make server chips you can reply with this link.
Anyways, I think they selected AMD not because of the Processor power or anything it's probably more regarding the location of the company. Daimler-Chrysler was bought by the Mercadece Benz about tow to three years ago. And everyone knos that Mercadece is made in Germany. And guess where does AMD make their Chip (Germany). So I think there was probably an influence by the local goverment to use AMD so it will help Germany's Economy. Just my opnion.
You can get fairly powerful Compaq systems from their CTO program. The 8000Z towers are mid-towers with 300-350W poer supplies that run Athlon XPs up to 1900+ with PC-2100 DDR up to 2GB, hard drives up to 120GB, most of the mid-to-high-end Nvidia GPUs, and so on...
