Dell, the world’s largest supplier of personal computers who exclusively uses processors by Intel Corp., officially sells chips made by Advanced Micro Devices via its web-site as “desktop accessories”.

Dell traditionally “evaluates” processors by AMD, according to its executives, but only uses central processing units (CPUs) from Intel Corp. in its systems. The industry experts believe that Dell receives Intel CPUs at prices below officially declared, but agrees to utilize those chips exclusively in exchange. Dell representatives used to claim that demand towards AMD-based systems is low, however, it is unclear how the demand for systems may be lower compared to the demand for processors sold by the company via its web-site, which was discovered by [H]ard|OCP web-site.

Neither AMD or Dell commented on the news-story.
