Dell: We’re open to using AMD chips

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 7:18 am

Dell’s Chief Executive Kevin Rollins said on Thursday that he is open to selling computers that run on microprocessors from Advanced Micro Devices.

Dell, the world’s biggest manufacturer of personal computers, currently uses microprocessors from No. 1 chipmaker Intel as the brains that run its machines. Dell is Intel’s biggest customer.

“We’re always open” to making changes, Rollins said. “We want the very best technology for our customers.”

Rollins made the comment to reporters after speaking at a lunch sponsored by the Boston College Chief Executives’ Club.

Industry analysts have long speculated that Dell might start offering customers the option of buying PCs that run on AMD microprocessors. Some analysts recently said that Dell may adopt AMD in servers, notebooks and desktops this year.
