The Register beschikt over wazige info waaruit zou moeten blijken dat de feitelijke verkoop van de Athlon zal beginnen in Japan, halverwege juli:
Once more, and as we predicted a week or so back, the Japanese market will be first off the starting blocks with sales of the AMD K7, now known as the Amazing Athlon.
Thanks to our friends for pointing to the following place where the 500MHz, the 550MHz and the 600MHz parts are already priced up.
According to Daiki, sales will start mid-July...
The parts will cost ¥44,800; ¥69,800 and ¥89,800 respectively. The UK distributor and dealer market is being told early August for real K7 parts.
