AMD recently bought the company Seamicro (for a hand sum) for the purposes of gaming their interconnect technology. Intel picked up Cray’s interconnect unit shortly after, but there is talk that their deal pre-existed the AMD one. However, regardless of who bought what first AMD bought the whole company while Intel only picked up a certain division.

Now if you are wondering how that affects AMD then it might interest you to know that Cray (a maker of super computers) has had a fondness for AMD since the introduction of the Opteron. Now with Intel grabbing up the Interconnect side of the house (and 74 Cray engineers) things could change quickly.
