That seems highly unlikely. It will damage the role of Intel in the server market fora time, but the trouble is that AMD's behavior has been at least as bad as Intel's, if not worse, in regards to Meltdown, so there's not a clearly better choice even though the AMD chips have less issues.

And what other choices are there for server kit?
