Dell's AMD notebooks to have ATI graphics

— 11:09 AM on August 11, 2006

In a relatively unsurprising move, Dell plans to use ATI graphics chips in its AMD notebooks, according to Taiwanese notebook manufacturers quizzed by DigiTimes. A Dell spokesman confirmed the upcoming AMD notebooks to CNet Taiwan last week; the machines are slated to use AMD Sempron and Turion 64 X2 processors and to feature 15.4" wide-screen displays. DigiTimes' Taiwanese moles say the machines will sport ATI Mobility Radeon graphics chips, although they don't specify whether ATI will also provide core logic for the notebooks.

In related news, Intel has asked the judge overseeing its antitrust confrontation with AMD to subpoena ATI. Intel believes that, due to its recent tie-up with AMD, ATI likely has "within its possession or control documents that are relevant to claims or defenses of the parties in the action." Such documents would include information regarding AMD's growth plans, the acquisition's potential repercussions on both Intel and AMD, and "any actual or perceived underperformance" by AMD prior to the acquisition.
