 Why do you talk only about Intel CPU ? Isn't the chipset (3100) more
 difficult to integrate than the CPU ?

 To answer your question, we have a very (I mean very) long life cycle
 on our product, and my hardware team seems to think (perhaps not
 wrongly) that they will be able to support Intel CPU longer than AMD
 ones... (they may change their mind with good arguments, but I doubt
 it, or they will propose ppc). And yes, I'm the software part ;)

 I have to understand that I would have to do a lot of reverse
 engeniering for Intel support (too bad they don't support this kind of
 Industry need).
