Intel stalks system builders

Overzealous account management

How times have changed. NOt so long ago Intel's account managers were considered an arrogant bunch, who wouldn't give the time of day to second and third-tier UK system builders.

It's different now: One UK player says that he's called every day by Intel and gets an unannounced visit once a week. This isn't a scary on-the-spot inspection kind of visit; it's a matey-get together-to make-sure-everything's-running-smoothly call. Intel's doing all it can to help.

Our UK source is happy with this (well, he prefers it to the service he used to get).

And in a role reversal, AMD account managers are getting a bit complacent, our system builder reports. Apparently they're not quite the-eager-to-please-team of old. A bit of success is going to their head? ®
