    Not sure if this has been posted already, if it was then i apologize.

    I find this very interesting. I wonder what made them choose AMD over Intel (even though I would prefer AMD). It seems these studios are trading in their RISC set-ups for less proprietary, "off the shelf" set-ups; Pixar uses Linux on their blade servers, Industrial Light and Magic uses Dell desktops as their workstations and a AMD Athlon based render farm. Do you guys think any studio will ever choose Apple for their render farm needs?

    well i think that the reason that Pixar went with Intel is because most rendering farms are on the x86 processor, but i think that slowly they are begining to incorporate G5s over at Pixar

    i think AMD processors are better than Intels in my opinion.....

    Dreamworks needs contracts with some good writers; ones who will write quality stories, as opposed to incessant pop-culture riffs that no one will understand in 3 years.
