Dell President and CEO, Kevin Rollins, recently stated that the company will stick to Intel processors for the time being. Not like we need them anyway but when other big players like HP have finally diversified its business to use AMD products, it makes us wonder if this really has to do with Intel's pressures on the manufacturer.
"If you look at the corporate market, which is where 85 percent of our business is today, the corporate user has not yet found confidence in AMD and so most of the corporations use Intel," he said. "Where AMD has gained a good foothold is in the consumer space. That has not been the primary focus of Dell strategically."
He added, however, that Dell tests every AMD chip, including its new 64-bit Opteron processor, in its labs.
