Dell answers the AMD question

— 4:57 AM on October 20, 2004

Why doesn't Dell use AMD processors? Why don't they sell Opteron servers? C|Net has answers straight from CEO Kevin Rollins.

Dell would also have to dedicate teams to design servers and PCs to accommodate AMD-based computers, which adds complexity and costs. AMD cannot produce chips in the same volume as Intel, Rollins said.
Rollins also claims that Dell's customers aren't really asking for AMD processors, but that seems highly unlikely when it comes to Opteron.
