Dell will not adopt AMD his 64bit processors

On Wednesday, Dell President Kevin Rollins indicated that the company intends to remain an Intel-only shop. Dell offers servers based on Intel's 64-bit Itanium chips, but AMD's new processors handle both 32-bit and 64-bit software.

"To go with an AMD solution becomes problematic for us from a cost and kind of an ice-breaking standpoint," Rollins said. "We believe 64-bit will be a technology customers will want and will migrate to it. It's a market that's emerging but not quite ripe yet."
