AMD partners furious over Asus 4x4 exclusive

AMD's motherboard partners aren't really happy about the fact that Asus will get the AMD 4x4 platform exclusive:
AMD's other partners did not receive a single set of 4x4 CPUs and they're unable to tell us if the 4x4 is going to work on their existing Opteron mobos or not.

An un-named product manager company accused AMD of, "acting like Intel". "We won't help them in future", he said.

He claimed that AMD knows its 4x4 "QuadFather" won't beat Kentsfield on performance, and this opinion was also voiced by other people we talked with.
