Sun + AMD = The Future

Given that it is hard to keep up with the news from US tech land while reporting two stories here in India, I am sorry for having missed this one. Sun’s decision to kill UltraSprac V and Gemini chips tells me that they are going to increase their dependence on AMD’s x86/64 bit chips, and will perhaps transition to using them in most of their low and medium end machines. Bold prediction: before end of 2004, Sun will make a nice investment in AMD.
