Someone must have extrapolated what would happen if Dell remained an Intel only shop and AMD continued its rapid growth in the enterprise. It would have been a simple graph - one line going up and the other going down.You can learn more over here.
Intel's shareholders have already made their feelings known about the chip giant's poor performance record. Dell doesn't want to end up where Intel currently is, so hence its Opteron announcement. But Dell won't be offering one-way and two-way Opteron based systems. So why such a limited embrace?
