Dell No Longer Plans to Use AMD Processors – CEO
Following Intel Corp.’s release of Intel Pentium 4 processors 600-series as well as yet another lineup of Intel Xeon DP, the world’s largest computer maker Dell Inc., who exclusively use Intel’s microprocessors in its products, said the company does not have plans to introduce systems powered by chips from Advanced Micro Devices.
Dell Says “No” to AMD
According to a report from Reuters, speaking to investors at the Goldman Sachs Technology Symposium in Phoenix, Arizona, Dell CEO Kevin Rollins said that Dell had been considering turning to AMD as a second source of central processing units (CPUs). However, at this point the company is no longer mulling to use processors from Advanced Micro Devices in its computers.
Mr. Rollins said his company’s customers and key Wall Street analysts had begun demanding that Dell start offering PCs based on AMD chips after desktop processors from the latter not only beat Intel Corp.’s Pentium 4 in terms of performance in a lot of applications, but also offered features, including 64-bit capability and power-saving technology that were absent in Intel’s products. AMD’s Opteron processors also managed to beat Intel’s Xeon chips in server and workstation benchmarks. Intel had not had a response to AMD Athlon 64 for about 1.5 years and a number of customers could consider switch to CPUs from AMD.
