Dell Using AMD in Desktops

Dell first surprised the public in May when it said it would begin using AMD's Opteron in servers. The company has been one of Intel's strongest supporters, using nothing but Pentium and Xeon processors in its computers even when it was clear that the Athlon and Opteron were dominating the performance landscape. Though the Core 2 Duo and Xeon 5100 series are just now breaking AMD's performance records, September will bring the first AMD-based Dimension desktops, Dell announced today in its quarterly report. Where AMD will fit in the Dimension line is unclear, but recent Athlon 64 price cuts and the budget focus of the Sempron suggest that Dell will use AMD to improve its lower-end systems, which sometimes struggle against less expensive models from companies like HP.
