Advanced Micro Devices is talking with Hewlett-Packard, Gateway and others about developing media-center style personal computers based on AMD’s Athlon 64 chips, an AMD official said on Thursday.

Though no products are ready to be announced and there is no guarantee that such products will be produced, AMD wants to see its Athlon 64 chips become the heart of a new generation of PCs that can play and distribute audio and video through the home.
