Dell selling AMD CPUs? We're entering taboo territory mentioning AMD and Dell in the same sentence, for sure, though Dell has toyed (who exactly they are toying with is a mystery) with selling AMD machines for a long time. They always go full swing with Intel, though, and have denied rumors to the contrary in the past. It seems a bit strange, then, that Dell offers AMD processors for sale, retail, on their website. However, these are just CPUs - not computers. Whatever supply contract, if any, Dell has, with Intel, they still have the standalone Dell parts store. This is fairly new, and may be a sign of things to come. AMD has been trying to get Dell as a backer for some time, but giants have a hard time pushing giants.
