Here are some of Om’s comments on the AMD/Dell deal. This story is major news. Om thinks that in the future Dell will not only use AMD chips in servers but in laptops as well. I tend to agree since AMD announced it will soon ship 64-bit dual-core processors designed for laptops. One interesting point here is that in the HMP space or host media processing where the CPU acts as a DSP, many of Intel’s rivals hope AMD does better and better. The reason is that Intel HMP solutions don’t work on AMD chips. Many other ones do.
