AMD heeft bevestigd dat er in west AustraliŽ een kleine batch met vervalste Athlons is aangetroffen (zie deze nieuwsposting van eerder deze maand). De zaak wordt op dit momemt verder door AMD onderzocht:
"AMD has confirmed that a single small batch of remarked Athlon processors was detected in Western Australia. The company believes it has recovered all of the remarked chips and is continuing a full investigation into the incident.
"AMD takes this occurence very seriously and is acting to prevent any recurrence," AMD said. "Events of this type make it even more important that AMD products are sourced through accredited distributors. By doing this, customers are guaranteeing themselves of total post sales support from AMD."
AMD says the number of processors involved in Western Australia was small and will continue ongoing communication with distributors and resellers in the Australian channel.
AMD is declining to comment further, pending the results of ongoing investigation into the Western Australian incident."
