Dell, AMD expected to expand chip pact

Dell, the last of the big four server makers to accept Advanced Micro Devices' chips into its
product portfolio, is expected to announce Thursday that it's expanding its partnership with the
chipmaker to include with new AMD-based servers, desktops and laptops.

Dell already scrapped its longtime Intel exclusivity in May, committing to sell a four-processor server
with AMD's Opteron by the end of the year. That's a relatively high-end niche for the Round Rock,
Texas-based computer maker, but sources familiar with the company's plans expect a broader
alliance to be announced Thursday afternoon, when Dell reports quarterly financial results.

Dell and AMD declined to comment on this report. However, Dell and AMD executives told CNET
Asia that AMD-based notebooks are due as soon as October; AMD also said that the partnership
includes desktop computers.
