Dell will use AMD processors, sooner or later

By on
Sure we have heard about it a million times from hundreds of sources, when AMD's CEO, Hector Ruiz, makes such a bold statement though it's quite a different story...

I'm all in for competition and I hope the best for AMD to gain some more market, it's obvious (though not confirmed) that Intel and Dell have a very juicy agreement going on by which the PC manufacturer has kept its Intel-only product line...

"I've always thought that Dell does not like to be a leader in technology, that they were a strong follower," said Ruiz, speaking to more than 100 business partners, reporters and analysts. "But I didn't realize they were going to be dead last [with Opteron]."[/COLOR]
