Intel looked at SeaMicro and was not impressed

Posted on Wednesday, March 07 2012 @ 16:59:55 CET by

Last week AMD announced the acquisition of SeaMicro for $334 million. Interestingly, Diane Bryant, Intel vice president and general manager of the company's Datacenter and Connected Systems Group, told the press at the Xeon E5-2600 launch event that SeaMicro approached Intel prior to the AMD deal. Intel took a look at SeaMicro's business but declined.
Speaking at a press event to launch Intel's Xeon Processor E5-2600 Product Family here Tuesday (March 6), Bryant said Intel was approached by prior to the AMD deal by executives from SeaMicro, which thus far has brought to market only products with Intel's Atom and Xeon chips.

"We did look at SeaMicro's fabric," Bryant said. "There are probably very few people they didn't come to and shop their technology. We were not impressed. We declined. Very soon after our competitor acquired them.

Bryant said Intel intends to continue to participate strong in the microserver market. Other firms, including Dell, Supermicro, NEC, Hitachi and Tyan, offer microservers based on Intel processors. Bryant said Intel believes it will continue to be the leading processor supplier to microservers.
