thanks a lot for this info, i think i'm switching sides to AMD now :p
A quick glance trough the article seems to point to the Opteron 2347 as a nice favorite,
but they do not seem to be available in Europe yet. i'll wait a bit more.

I see these also seem to have some iommu implemented, that could prove VERY neat for a xen setup,
if the iommu will be supported by xen.

Thanks a lot,

I can't answer your question with empirical evidence, but I'm just about
to  buy a large-ish AMD-based system due to what I've read on this list
and elsewhere for a couple years.  I'm going this way in part because I
feel that AMD has a more correct virtualization implementation, in the
same way that they have a more correct quad-core implementation, and in
part because their 2- and 4-socket quad-core chips are an incredible
value relative to Intel's chips

top-performance isn't your goal...  Besides, its fun to support the
underdog  ;)
