The Register meldt dat AMD de release van de AMD Athlon heeft vervroegd naar 10 augustus. Check dit bericht.
AMD will finally take the wraps of the Athlon K7 on Tuesday 10 August, according to reliable but eminently impeachable sources. Benchmark data, however, continues to leak out early.
The company had originally been planning the big push for the end of August. As this has now been brought forward by three weeks, the implication is that AMD's yields on the K7 are better than initially planned for, and that it feels sufficiently sure of supply to counter the various pre-emptive strikes Intel has been mounting.
Earlier today (see story) Intel let it be known that 2 August was D-Day for 600MHz PIII, 500MHz Celeron and another round of price cuts.
Of dit echt zo is is maar de vraag, de bronnen van The Register zijn niet echt waterdicht te noemen.
