In case you were wondering, no, AMD hasn't managed to fsck everything up. It's still making lots of money

If it were up to me generally not. Though to be honest we'd really need to do some sort of proper testing for some of the low-latency stuff to see if it can match what the current Intel kit does.

I like the phrase "bureaucratic inertia". Sums up what happened when we did agree on moving to AMD for a QA env, only for the devs to u-turn as they got scared that it "wasn't what they had in prod". Even though it won't be used for performance testing use.
