Media Markt gets AMD

Written by Slobodan Simic

Some like the Vision

Media Markt has finally started to sell AMD systems in its stores and those that are familiar with Media Markt know quite well that this has been an Intel-only store for quite some time. However, it looks like AMD managed to squeeze itself in and that those shopping in the Media Markt will finally see some of those Vision stickers.

The latest brochure from Media Markt includes Acer Aspire 7551 notebook and HP dv7, running either AMD Athlon II P320 GPU with HD 4250 graphics, or in the HP dv7 a Phenom II and HD 5650 graphics. The lineup doesn't end there as Media Markt is apparently happy to offer a couple of Acer and HP desktop systems based on AMD insides as well. Media Markt Germany has still to update its offer but we are quite sure that this will happen pretty soon.

This happens some eighteen months after EU fined Intel for granting discounts to several retailers in order to exclusively sell Intel-based systems and it looks like things are finally starting to tip into AMD's favour.

The guys from Tweakers.net managed to get a nice clear screenshot of this brochure but we are quite sure that Media Markt isn't the only one on AMD's list and other shops might get products with Vision stickers pretty soon.

INTEL is TRULY an example of CORRUPTION unchecked. I'm happy to see that AMD finally gets to sell computers in Europe.

How did AMD survive for so long? This business requires BILLIONS in R$D. One would think that not being able to make sales would cause an R&D-intensive company to go bankrupt?

But... I guess that was Intel's intention.

I can't get over it.. How did Intel get away with such behavior for so long? I'm never buying another Intel product.

Are you sure it's AMD that has "managed to squeeze itself in" and it's not Acet/HP/others not wanting to be in the middle of this Intel vs AMD raffle seeing how the EUC like to throw hefty fines at them?

@jimt, you and a lot of us, buddy, however don't just stop here... if you can influence people not to buy into the eveil inside, do it!

And for R&D, they did it because they have a good relationship between the R&D teams and the production teams, which now belong to GloFo. If they manage to work together without sparking internal competition, then don't be surprised that a small company makes really good products with small amounts of money.
