Dell to offer more AMD chips than claimed?
The Inquirer says it has word that Dell will end up offering more AMD-powered
machines than expected. Last month, the computer manufacturer announced that it would begin to sell
four-way servers powered by AMD processors by the end of the year.
However, The Inquirer now says it has confirmation from "sources all
over Taiwan" that Dell will offer AMD processors outside of quad-chip
servers. The Inquirer's sources are said to have remained mute regarding
exact product lines, but the site says "[Dell has] to order parts some
time, and there are no secrets in Taiwan."
Considering that Dell effectively sells AMD-powered gaming systems
already via Alienware, one could
certainly see Dell eventually selling AMD chips in some of its
high-powered XPS gaming desktops. Either way, The Inquirer says to
expect another major announcement from Dell "as soon as Wall Street
needs to have a shiny thing dangled in front of them as a distraction."
