Dell Inc. considered building PCs with chips from Advanced Micro Devices but now aims to keep Intel Corp. as its sole supplier, Dell’s chief executive said on Wednesday.
The comments from chief executive Kevin Rollins dashed expectations that Dell would eventually use both Intel and AMD chips in its personal computers. AMD shares lost as much as 4 percent, before closing down just over 2 percent.
“That’s looking like ‘No’,” Rollins, speaking at an investor conference in Phoenix, said of the company’s consideration of using AMD chips. “For a while it was looking like ‘Yes.'”
