Dell powers up first AMD servers

Long time Intel shop branches out.

After years of will it, won't it, long-time Intel shop Dell has finally shipped its first AMD-based servers incorporating Opteron processors.

The firm used an Oracle conference to launch the four-chip PowerEdge 6950, shipping at US$6,499, which it said is targeted at the low-end database market. It also announced the low-end dual Opteron processor PowerEdge SC1435 selling at US$1,299.

The company is expected to position its AMD-based servers at particular sectors such as web server and database markets, and to attempt to avoid targeting Intel and AMD-based servers at the same users.
