    Maybe I was under the false impression that AWS runs on AMD server platforms.

    Why would Amazon use Intel when AMD is literally better in every way?

    Maybe it isn't proven stable enough yet?
    Maybe Amazon want to wait 10 more AGESA releases and 30 bioses later...

    Big companies donĀ“t like to depend on just one supplier so they buy stuff from several.

    So, right now Amazon is using Intel, AMD and their own ARM CPUs for their servers.

    Go educate yourself. You are not successful by flexing PC parts. Your comments are so cringe most of the time.

    Aside from the things that were already mentioned, availability could have a lot to do with it. When you need to expand and your business is losing money as a result, you spend extra on something worse, because having something overpriced is better than nothing at all.

    This isn't 2018 anymore, and servers don't see updates all that often. Amazon has already gone with AMD so unless they changed their mind about stability, I don't think that's the problem.

    this is for clients with legacy Intel

    not what they use internally

    YES
    you didn't read your own cut out quote "more choices when running their Intel powered infrastructure"

    what does that tell you?

    In addition to being the most broadly deployed compute architecture, Intel Xeon processors are supported by the industry's broadest ecosystem of data center software.

    If I was you, I'd cut the losses and live to fight another day :D
