IBM Servers To Use AMD Processors

On the heels of the announcement this morning that AMD now holds 25% of the server market, IBM has announced that the company will use AMD processors in its new servers.

The announcement is a boost for AMD as it hopes to maintain momentum against a raft of new chips from Intel. Dell Inc., the world's biggest personal computer maker, in May said it planned to use AMD's Opteron processors in high-end server computers by the end of the year, ending a 22-year exclusive relationship with Intel.
