Intel inside again for new Google servers

Intel seems to be on the rebound not only on the desktop side of the picture, but the server side as well. Google has begun buying Intel server components in high volume, Pat Gelsinger, a co-general manager of Intel's Digital Enterprise Group, wrote on his blog. Gelsinger said Intel had to create custom equipment to win back the business. Intel design teams "have been maniacal as we designed a unique board for them, developing a unique memory module with them, working every angle of the cost equation and engaging with our sales teams to get the business," Gelsinger said. "We bought a small number of chips from Intel recently, but we continue to be supplied by more than one vendor," Google said in a statement but didn't discuss motherboard purchases or other details.
