Mumbai: Top computer maker Dell is shifting its hardware design unit from its R&D centre in Bangalore to Austin and Taiwan, a top company official said.

Dell"Hardware design is being slowly phased out from the centre here to our centres in Austin and Taiwan", Pallab Talukdar, enterprise strategy group director of Dell India, said.

Dell's R&D centre in Bangalore has shifted focus from hardware design to software, management and testing, he said, adding that Dell plans to ramp up the R&D centre, which has a current strength of over 500.

The company also launched a new server - Poweredge M-series, which it claims consumes up to 19 per cent less power and achieves about 25 per cent better performance per unit.

The M-series also provides lead-free configurations, delivering a green solution that further helps customers minimise their environmental impact, he said.

Dell reported $600 million in revenue from its business in India in 2007.
