Recently, Dell announced that they will be using AMD's Opteron procesors for their server PCs (even limited at that). While I am overjoyed by this news - being an AMD fan - I can't but cast suspicions on this deal. I know AMD has welcomed this but is this just a strategy by Intel to weaken AMD's case against it or is Dell genuinly interested? In the case of the former, Dell can go back to Intel very easily. Anyone following the server level processor benchmarks knows that the Opteron kicks the living daylights out of the Xeon.
I started a thread on FFA Forums
about it and have recieved some interesting responses though it did get a bit off topic at the end over the Apple vs PC debate.
