I don't know about 'the newest', but the LinuxChix server runs on one 
of our used-to-be-a-desktop AMD cpus, and so does our print server, 
and all of our desktops are AMD....

We've had nil problems with them, and have been using them since 
the first Pentiums came out.

That's a take-it-back-to-the-store problem. One I've never had.
