Dell to offer Opteron Servers

Dell issued Dthis press release yesterday, and for me, the news couldn’t have been any better.

In the enterprise, we will launch new ninth generation servers featuring Intel’s Woodcrest microprocessors. Dell will also introduce new AMD Opteron processors in our multi-processor servers by the end of the year offering a great new technology to our customers at the high-end of our server line.

DailyTech as some commentary in the article Hell Freezes Over.

I think AMD is definitely on the upswing again, and I, for one, couldn’t be happier. I previously mentioned my desire for one of these, but I don’t think I can (or want to) put my purchase off that long. It also looks like it’s only going to be upper-end machines, and I’m looking to keep our purchase under $1,500 if at all possible. I guess I’ll just cross my fingers and wait and see what happens in the next month.
