Hey all you AMD aficianados.
Just read this in the August 2006 issue of Maximum PC Magazine:
After 20-plus years of selling nothing but Intel processors in it's workstations, desktops, and laptops, Dell has finally broken free from Intel's shackles and announced it will begin selling AMD powered servers by the end of 2006. The announcement rocked the IT industry, and sent Intel's stock tumbling to a three year low. The deal will allow AMD to make major inroads into the lucrative server market. Could AMD-based desktops be far behind?
This is great news for AMD. To think that in the not so distant past, AMD was but a blip on the radar of the processor scene. Dell, being the world's largest PC maker, is indeed "catching the big fish" for AMD.
Considering that Intel will not go anywhere, anytime soon, this may be the ideal time to buy some Intel shares.
I will not go so far as to slam Intel for it's product, they are indeed a great company, but it seems that they were asleep at the switch while AMD snuck up behind them and left them in the dust!
