Een woordvoerder van AMD heeft tegenover The Register bevestigd dat de 1,2GHz Athlon en Duron 800 later deze maand gereleased worden. De aankondiging van de AMD 760 chipset volgt "not too far into the future" (thanks Thermo voor de tip):
A spokesperson for AMD Europe told The Register that both the 1.2GHz Athlon and an 800MHz Duron would be formally announced later this month, giving Chimpzilla a clear lead in performance stakes over the crucial Christmas buying period. An announcement on DDR SDRAM would follow "not too far into the future", the spokesperson added.
AMD is currently riding high with a number of significant wins at PC makers who have historically been 100 per cent Intel, such as the UK's Tiny, Germany's Vobis and Micron in the US.
