Dell Close To Adopt Opterons

Dell indicated that the company is actively considering including AMD processors in its server roster in the foreseeable future. As of now, the PC and server maker remains as the lone holdout among its competition in not using AMD chips. AMD’s technology lead on Intel in the 64-bit category as the primary reason for the shift in Dell’s Intel-only strategy. Dell is not expecting, however, to put the AMD chips into desktop PCs.
