Some of things I read suggested this is about server fabrics.
AMD's purchase of SeaMicro out from under Intel's arm may have had
something to do with it. Intel needed a fabric for dense server
boxes. I would think there may be a "back license" in there for Cray
somewhere. Not sure this is an HPC play.
