"According to sources at motherboard makers, Intel recently landed a deal with search engine giant Google to supply CPUs for about 300,000-400,000 servers for Google, with Intel sweetening the deal by providing free chipsets to support the processors. The sources stated that Intel will provide a custom-designed solution for Google’s servers, with Gigabyte Technology expected to support the project, as the motherboard maker has had a manufacturing relationship with Google in the past.

Intel had been the CPU provider to Google before the AMD deal was made last year, with the sources noting that Google switched from Intel and adopted AMD Opteron solutions in March of last year mainly because Intel’s Netburst architecture was not competitive on pricing and performance, compared with AMD's solution. However, with Intel now providing quad-core Xeon processors, as well as throwing in free chipsets into the deal, the company was able to win back the orders, the sources explained. More specific details of the chip specifications were not available."
