This customer is huge, a bigger CPU buyer than Microsoft, and has if anything, a larger commitment to ARM servers than Microsoft does. Both Microsoft and buyer #2 is in what Intel categorizes as the Super 7+1, the top-tier of customers getting the best prices on Xeons. This new mystery buyer #3 is also a member of that elite club, so who are they and who are they buying from?
