AMD Wants Back in the Server Farm

AMD has been making quite a splash in the desktop/enthusiast market with their new Ryzen chips, but they aren't done there. Intel has dominated the server room for years now and AMD wants back in. They have a 32-core Naples chip that should give most anything from Intel a run for it's money - and it will come in at a very attractive price. 

The Naples server chips are based on the x86 architecture, but they don’t have an official name yet. AMD was once a legitimate threat to Intel, but a series of missteps killed its server business. The decline started with the heavily criticized Bulldozer architecture, and the company later bet its server future on ARM chips, but slow demand knocked the company out of servers.
