    A bribe would not be adequate. Most large corporations would not do business with a company that offered a bribe, as it calls their trustworthiness into question. For large companies with thousands of notebooks and some desktop workstations, the risk of going with a wildcard product is not attractive. They generally take a low risk path and go with something they already trust. And, AMD does not really bring anything to the table for their fleets of business notebooks. Intel essentially has the only horse in the race. That could change if AMD shows up with a compelling offering in the notebook realm. Right now they do not really have anything available for anyone to even consider.

    Question for the resellers.

    I have seen some of the resellers offering "Polishing or lapping" services on the CPU cooler. Does this procedure net positive results. Are the results measurable or is it a few degree delta and within the margin of error.

    In short, how effective is this service?

    Nope, most companies don't support AMD CPUs because the demand from manufacturers for support (from AMD) in integrating AMD solutions into their products is higher than what AMD can support at the moment. It has nothing to do with money on the demand side, it's about resources on the supply side. That's why we have seen a single exclusive ODM with AMD CPU support in 2017 and now a small handful more in 2018.
