We're delighted with AMDs.  We have a three machine system (control
runs on the Display machine for ease of operation) and CPU
utilization, with single 1.4 GHz AMD procs in each is roughly
as follows:

Display/control machine; 10% + 4% per display window, rounded up to
    100% by APware' stupid use of serial port, but this doesn't
    trouble us as long as APware's priority is set to LOW

Audio machine: very low utilization

Video machine: around 10% per video feed

Hope that helps.
