    That depends on the type of server and its function.

    If you have a lot of movies to rip and transcode, may make a nice home media server.

    There's a company that builds clusters with Llano APUs currently if your project distributes well over such an architecture.

    Possibly a decent chip for local workgroup VDI (Desktop Virtualization), such as classroom computers.
     
    Super XP and NeoXF say thanks.

    Speaking of which, I wonder if the HSA Foundation (in other words, future APU implementations) will have any say in AMD's Opteron series...

    Yes a home media server just as the poster below yours has pointed out. But perhaps not for an online gaming server.

    seems like based on initial reviews it consumes less power than previous generation. I am guessing same would be true for the AM3+ CPUs that is to come. If that is the case I might jump on to the new AM3+.

    Nothing like a nice ASUS Crosshair V or it's little brother Sabertooth :)
