AMD takes aim at biz markets

Workstations first brick in the wall

Chip firm AMD appears to have taken its first steps to attack Intel where it hurts, in the workstation and server markets.

A report on AMD Zone suggests that the first major OEM deal is already signed, sealed and delivered, using 760 chipset based Mustang for the mid-range, and Palomino for entry-level workstations.

Although AMD Zone reports this as a rumour, it does have all the hallmarks of veracity.

AMD itself has made no secret of the fact that it wants to edge into the lucrative business markets, and notebook roadmaps we revealed earlier this year show that the firm wants to attack Intel in that sector too.

So far, Intel still rules the corporate roost, but the widespread publicity AMD has had since it introduced its Athlon microprocessor just shortly over a year ago, gives it a fighting chance to take some share from the chip giant. ®
