Wow thats a suprise.

I was expecting Dell to stay loyal to Intel, especially now that Intel is set to own AMD with its Conroe.

I've heard talk of this for a little while now. Hopefully it will drive the Intel prices down.

Better late then never doens't apply in this case..

The computer enthusiest community expect's intel to re-steal the performance crown, and THEN dell goes AMD. ironic

Yeah I was surprised at this news myself, although one can't resist questioning their motive for the move. Perhaps Dell are doing Intel a favour in their anti-trust court case, or whether it's purely monetary (due to the Opteron's popularity).

Dell realised , albeit a little late , that if they want their server market share back , they will have to get opterons no matter what. The consumers decided late as well that they want opterons instead of xeons. Hell a quad opteron setup kills a quad memrom setup and that proc isnt even launched yet. So yea , good move by Dell. I am guessing we are going to see more amd procs in their desktop lineup aswell. Especially in their XPS gaming lineup now that they have acquired Alienware.

Hmmmm something doesn't seem right here. Intel is about to sweep the market with conroe yet Dell moves to AMD? Do they know something we don't?
