    ....(after quick look on Wiki) ....

    my bad. The new ones (since 2008) are 64 bit. None support Virtualisation via hardware yet though...

    might be interesting if AMD starts pushing fusion for this - they have a potential product ready to roll....

    As linked in the article, they are thinking about it, but they face the same problem as Intel. The Bobcat cores don't support server specific features. I'm assuming that's things like virtualisation tech and support for ECC RAM, although I'm not totally sure.

    It's exactly those things, ECC RAM and the amount supported is the deal breaker for many server buyers. I doubt they'd be looking to virtualise on these platforms, they'd be running multi-threaded web server work loads, the type of thing that processes many small parallel jobs, the only other thing in this area are the Sun/Oracle UltraSPARC T2.
