Mainstream server range


Dell is starting to put AMD chips into its more popular server ranges. It has been slowly expanding its adoption of AMD chips after years of being an Intel only shop. However this week it has rolled out an AMD version of its most popular server, the PowerEdge 2970.

It will also be upgradeable to AMD's quad-core processor due out later this year. Multicore processors are especially well-suited to servers. By dividing up demanding tasks between the cores, the processor can deliver better performance while using less power.
