Dell hooks up with AMD - Intel-only era ends
Dell has done what many thought impossible and broken its Intel-only stance. The company today will announce that it will pick up AMD's Opteron processor for use in servers, The Register has learned.
The Opteron embrace ends years of speculation about when Dell would finally give in and pick up AMD as a second supplier. Oddly, Dell is going the AMD route at a time when Intel is about to release chips that are more competitive with those of its rival.
Dell has long maintained that customers have not been demanding AMD chips, although market share numbers have not backed up such statements. Dell's server growth has slowed in recent quarters, while shipments of Opteron chips have skyrocketed. In addition, AMD's line of desktop chips have grown in popularity.
