Asustek Computer, a leading mainboard of mainboards and other computer components, has reportedly ordered an unprecedented amount of low-cost AMD Sempron microprocessors. If the information is correct, Asus shows substantial interest towards producing low-cost personal computers featuring central processing units (CPUs) from Advanced Micro Devices.

Certain market sources claim that Asustek acquired as much as one million of AMD Sempron microprocessors, whereas more conservative sources estimate that it is more likely that Asustek ordered more than half a million, but less than a million of inexpensive central processing units from AMD, reports DigiTimes web-site. Many observers believe that Asus intends to produce a version of its E-series products based on AMD Sempron chips.

Asustek Computer announced on Wednesday a lineup of various devices that will be marketed under Eee trademark. The family will include a desktop (E-DT), an HDTV and an all-in-one desktop system. The new products will allow Asus to enter new markets.

Asustek has reportedly confirmed that it plans to support Intel’s low-cost PC platform, Shelton ‘08, with the E-DT, however, the type of CPU and the size of the AMD order Asustek is said to have placed would be consistent with moves to develop an AMD-based alternative, the web-site reports.

Actual details about AMD-based Asus products are not available.
