By putting AMD's 64-bit Opteron processor in some of its ProLiant servers, HP becomes the third major OEM to use the chip.

Hewlett-Packard Co. executives on Tuesday will announce that they are going to use Advanced Micro Devices Inc.'s 64-bit Opteron processor in some of their ProLiant servers, according to a source close to both companies.

HP has scheduled a press conference for Tuesday morning in Houston to discuss the expansion of its industry-standard server line, which includes x86 systems currently powered by Intel Corp.'s 32-bit Xeon and Pentium processors.

An HP spokesperson would not comment on the details of the announcements. A spokesman with AMD, of Sunnyvale, Calif., also declined to comment.
