up and down trend

AMD seems to have done a fine job at making "something that customers want" inexpensive, and yet perform like something that IS expensive.

At some point trends will probably move around again, but I suspect there will be a need for MORE server-side horsepower SOME day. The trigger COULD be a technological leap in faster internet routing.

The ARM server decline surprises me a bit. Is this because of K8's and cloud? Not enough ARM support?
