Dell delivers major setback to AMD

Published by • February 10th, 2008 RSS News Feed

Dell has recently decided to stop selling computers with Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) chips through its online store. The news could not come at a worse time for AMD whose business and profitability has been extremely sluggish as it continues to fight an uphill battle against chip heavyweight Intel.

Dell’s move caused a stir online that the company tried to tamp down.  A spokesman, David Frink, called the development — which Dell disclosed to consumers on the company’s Web site — “not even all that interesting.”

“We regularly adjust our product offerings and how customers can purchase those products,” he said. “The majority of our consumer AMD-based systems are available through our retail partners and telephone sales.”
