Dell CEO: relationship with AMD will expand

— 11:30 AM on July 26, 2006

Dell President and CEO Kevin Rollins has let slip an interesting nugget of information about his company's AMD plans in an interview with the Austin American-Statesman. The interview itself focuses on Dell's financial struggles, but towards the end, Rollins reveals the following:

On the corporate side, Dell started using processors from Advanced Micro Devices Inc. in its higher-end servers, breaking an exclusive reliance on Intel Corp. chips. The Dell-AMD relationship will expand, Rollins said, though he declined to say exactly how.
This statement comes after persistent rumors that Dell plans to introduce a full line of AMD-powered machines, including AMD notebooks for the back-to-school season. Corroborating these rumors, the Chinese-language Commercial Times also reported on Monday that Taiwanese notebook ODM heavyweights Quanta and Mitac had landed orders for AMD notebooks from Dell. Shipments of these notebooks are reportedly scheduled to start around September. Thanks to The Inquirer for the tip.
