As many of you will already know, AMD today announced their AMD Opteron 64bit workstation / server level processor.
Companies including nVidia and VIA also announced their supporting motherboard chipsets today in the nForce3 Pro and VIA Apollo K8T400M, respectively, along with a bunch of other IT companies announcing their support for AMD's world changing processor which help put AMD in a seemingly nice position at the moment as Intel remain without a 64bit platform on the market - at least for the time being.
NEW YORK CITY, NY-APRIL 22, 2003-NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, today introduced NVIDIA nForce3 Professional, the Company's first single-chip, core-logic solution for professional computing environments. Optimized for the new 64-bit AMD Opteron processor announced earlier today, NVIDIA nForce3 Professional platform processors provide a compatible, stable, and reliable computing platform for professional workstation users who wish to exploit the benefits of both 32-bit and 64-bit computing environments. In addition, all NVIDIA platform processors take advantage of the NVIDIA Unified Driver Architecture-NVIDIA's "one driver for all platforms" design philosophy-which greatly simplifies IT deployment and enhance low-cost product life cycle management.More information @ nVidia
