Dell had been mulling over building new machines with AMD processors at the heart of them, but has now apparently decided against the move. Intel will remain the sole supplier for the company, dashing expectations that Dell would use both Intel and AMD to provide chips for its workstations, servers and laptops.
AMD gathered momentum and credibility last year when it came out with technologies that were ahead of Intel, at a time when Intel seemed to be getting a lot of things wrong, delaying and cancelling products after designs were found to be defective, and so forth. Many in the industry then speculated that Dell might start to sell AMD based machines, and some Dell customers seemed very pleased by this idea. However, with Intel starting to make a comeback, it looks like Dell has rejected this idea.
