Sorry folks, just a little bit of idle speculation on the part of some journalist...

But ... but ... but ... I already bought the stock! The little green men from Mars told me that it was all true and they never lie.

I've got a few Dell server engineers here this week at my work, and let me just say, they've tried to kill this rumor about a month ago; now they are just laughing at it.

I think the key point was:

AMD has finally been able to penetrate Dell



Asus P4P800DX, P4C 2.6ghz@3.25ghz, 2X512 OCZ PC4000 3-3-3-8, Leadtek FX5900 w/ FX5950U bios@500/1000, 2X30gig Raid0

What’s the big deal Dell was working with SUN and IBM as well. This also isn’t anything special or surprising Dells been tinkering with their silicon since the K7. So good for AMD they get into the server segment. But they can’t even dream to produce enough silicon to supply Dell's desktop line.
