Ik kwam bij AMD Zone deze erg handige post tegen die duidelijkheid geeft over de huidige situatie met de Athlon moederborden (MSI screw-up enzo). Check it:
Went down to *** to see what the availability situation is. They have one Athlon there in the store (550 MHz) and he said that he could get all the CPU's he wanted but wasn't going to bother until he had some motherboards to pair with them. His son now works at AMD and his job involves certifying motherboards. He said that MSI had submitted a motherboard to AMD for certification and then, after they had got certified, they went back and fiddled with the design and then manufactured some 11,000 substandard boards and shipped them out. They were sent to Japan, the U.K., and the U.S., including Austin. They had removed a transistor, reduced the size of many of the capacitors, and redone some of the PCB etching. Right now, AMD itself is manually reworking most of those MSI boards just to get them out on the street. He also said that IBM had pushed back the start of its' Athlon sales two weeks while they dealt with some motherboard problems of their own. Lastly, ASUS had developed a board but the design did not allow CPU speeds over 700 MHz.
