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.
