The following commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet's guest contributor program, which is separate from the company's news coverage.NEW YORK ( Trefis) -- In a move to improve its performance in the server market, AMD ( AMD) recently announced plans to acquire SeaMicro for a payment of $334 million. SeaMicro builds micro servers that essentially pack together several chips to save space and energy. The deal attempt is an attempt to improve upon AMD's company's consistently poor performance compared to Intel ( INTC) in the server market over the past few quarters. Going forward, this market is going to get even more competitive as companies such as Nvidia ( NVDA) others enter with ARM-based server chips. AMD is looking to leverage this acquisition to gain server processor market share as soon as it can.
