Why Dell now ships Opteron-based systems

Posted on Wednesday, May 31 2006 @ 13:10:57 CEST by

The Inquirer discusses why Dell decided to ship servers with Opteron processors:
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.

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?

Actually since the Conroe family will likely perform as well or better this is more likely a position move meant to quietly undo the lawsuit brought by AMD...
