IBM puts AMD processors in itis servers

Posted on Wednesday, Aug 02 2006 @ 00:25 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
It's expected IBM will announce new mainstream servers based on AMD's processors today.
The move would further AMD's penetration into the server sector, where it has enjoyed its greatest commercial success, and represent another milestone in the Sunnyvale, Calif., chipmaker's battle with Intel.

IBM and AMD already have various partnerships in place involving semiconductor research and development and manufacturing. But IBM currently uses AMD processors in only a small percentage of its servers, opting for chips by Intel, as well as its own Power processor, in the vast majority of its systems.
