Dell Unveils First AMD Desktops

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 4:46 pm

Dell has added a new dimension to its desktop PCs by taking the wraps off of its first AMD-processor-based machines.

The PC maker began taking orders for its new Dimension E521 and C521 desktops, which will offer Advanced Micro Devices’ Sempron, Athlon 64 and dual-core Athlon 64 X2 chips, on Sept. 13.

The Dell-AMD machines, aimed at consumers and small businesses, are part of a cadre of upgraded desktops the Round Rock, Texas, PC maker has introduced as part of an effort to better address customers’ needs by broadening its product line in 2006.

Dell, which had long been an Intel-only shop, made the jump to AMD because it has been convinced that customers wanted AMD chips and also that AMD itself is on good standings in terms of technology and manufacturing capacity.
