Dell CEO: relationship with AMD will expand

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.
