If you thought that the AMD-ATI line-up will shove Nvidia out of the door, think again. SNAP (Strategic Nvidia-AMD Partnership) was never dead, nor will it end anytime soon, since AMD is constantly telling us that "AMD is not Intel". The Dell line-up only confirms what we previously thought. All of the business-class PCs are equipped with Nvidia nForce 430 chipset with integrated GeForce 6150 graphics. The graphics is also upgradeable since every PC comes with PCIe x16 slot built-in.Check it out over here to view the full specifications and release dates.
The line up is divided into Dimension, Optiplex and XPS. However, XPS will not be launched alongside the Dimension/Optiplex combination, since the company is waiting for AMD's 4x4 platform. We will give you more details about XPS line-up in a series of follow-up articles, so stay tuned to theoINQwire for more news. But you can expect that Dell and Dellienware will probably end up as the highest volume provider for the 4x4 platform.
