Default AMD Processors

I've used Hollywood Strings with an AMD system and currently on an Intel system. With the (somewhat old) news that AMD has an eight core processor that can run at 5.0 Ghz I'm finding the switch tempting. I'm just not sure if the software has some sort of preference for Intel processors due to design.
I was even looking into some dual processor (AMD Opteron) systems that would give me 32 cores at 3.4 ghz and an option for 128 gigs of ram

AMD a good way to go for these massive libraries?

Yeah except that AMD 8 cores perform worse than Intel 4 core i5s, maybe due to how inter-core communication is handled.

Vin Curligliano (search DAWBench) highly recommends audio users stay away from AMD. The guy is also a custom DAW builder and has done a hell of a lot of research in to real time audio. Worth taking that advice.
