Dell ordered 1.8 to 2 million AMD systems

1 post in this topic

Last night, CNet reported that AMD and Dell were about to officially announce an extended partnership. No such announcement has surfaced yet, but a Bank of America analyst has now told the news site that Dell has placed orders for 1-1.2 million AMD-based desktop PCs and around 800,000 AMD-based notebooks. The analyst says Dell is setting aside 15-16% of its desktop business and 18-19% of its notebook business for AMD, which isn't a negligible loss for Intel.

With respect to the AMD-Dell machines' availability, the analyst quotes a late third quarter or early fourth quarter time frame, likely meaning September or October. This is consistent with an early October schedule cited by ZDNet Asia for Dell's AMD-powered notebooks. In anticipation of an official announcement from Dell, AMD's share price has climbed to $24.39, up $7 from the $17.39 low that followed news of the ATI acquisition on July 24.


18 a 19 % do mercado dos notebooks e 15-16 % nos desktops será mais um motivo para a AMD ter esperança de chegar aos 25% de mercado no final do ano. Eu duvido que chegue aos 25% por razões simples: daqui a nada começa a escolinha...e mais coisa menos coisa, chega o Natal :P

A minha expectativa é que ficará nos 22-23 %, mesmo assim sendo um recorde por parte desta empresa. :D
