Dell announces AMD-based Dimension desktops

After weeks of rumors and speculation, Dell has finally
made an official announcement
regarding the expansion of its
relationship with AMD. In its latest quarterly report, Dell says the

Dell is extending its relationship with AMD, first announced last
quarter. Dell will launch Dimension desktop computers with AMD
processors next month and will introduce a two-socket and
multi-processor server using AMD Opteron processors by the end of the
year. . . . Dell’s partnerships with AMD and Intel will greatly enhance
its ability to end the year with the broadest and best product line in
its history.

Oddly, Dell makes no mention of AMD-powered notebooks, even though the
machines were confirmed by
representatives from both AMD and Dell earlier this month. ZDNet Asia
reported on August 4 that the notebooks will ship in early October with
mobile Sempron or Turion 64 X2 processors, and an analyst told CNet yesterday that Dell has already
placed orders for around 800,000 AMD-based notebooks.
