Posted on Monday, Sep 04 2006 @ 16:44 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
DigiTimes heard from their sources that Dell is planning to use 20 million processors from AMD for its servers, desktop PCs and notebooks between Q4 2006 and Q4 2007.
Sources in the Taiwan notebook industry pointed out that AMD has progressively expanded its presence in the notebook sector, by adding Dell as one of its major supporters in addition to Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Acer. Obtaining Dell's support would better convince domestic notebook manufacturers to divert more R&D facilities and resources to AMD-based products, the sources indicated.

AMD declined to comment on the report and denied to reveal any details of the company's relationship with customers.
