And Intel the thumb down

Shortages of Intel processors means that major manufacturer Lenovo is using AMD chips more and more, while it has also given the hard word to Chipzilla.

That's according to senior executives at Lenovo, speaking to Fudzilla at the Canalys Channel Forum, a distributor and reseller conference in Barcelona.

A Lenovo representative said that “Intel is struggling with product constraints and we have a high level of demand. We have a good relationship with AMD.”

Lenovo has also brought up the problem with Intel and believes that it is working hard to fix the problem. It still has a good relationship with Intel, it was keen to stress.
