Intel Gonna Ship Dual Core Too

Wednesday 13 April 2005 @ 1:54 pm

Just a few days after AMD announced the shipment of their Dual Core processor, Intel is up to the challenge by announcing they are going to ship their first Dual Core processor, Pentium Extreme Edition 840 processor, ahead of an official launch, which is expected to take place soon.

“The launch will be in the immediate future,” said Abhi Talwalkar, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Digital Enterprise Group, speaking with reporters at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Taipei. He said Intel’s dual-core announcement was “imminent.”

AMD is likely to be the first with the launch of its dual-core Opteron processors expected on April 21. However, Talwalkar declined to comment on when exactly Intel plans to officially launch the Pentium Extreme Edition 840.


Dell Remains Open to AMD

So glad to hear that Dell remains open to AMD.

In what amounts to one of the PC industry’s longest-running sagas of on-again, off-again courtship, Dell Chief Executive Kevin Rollins once again revived speculation that Dell could end its long-standing refusal to use Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Inc. chips.

However, Mr. Rollin also mentioned Dell would only turn to AMD if customers demanded it start using AMD chips and not just Intel’s.

Anyway, hope we can see more new Dell PCs utilizing AMD processors soon.
