AMD heeft wat info los gelaten over de beschikbaarheid van Athlon moederplanken. Inmiddels zijn er zes fabrikanten die binnen enkele weken hun mobo's in beperkte hoeveelheden moeten kunnen leveren:
Many motherboard manufacturers are working diligently to supply the channel with motherboards for the recently released AMD Athlon. Currently, motherboards for the AMD Athlon are in very limited supply. However, we expect up to six different manufacturers will have AMD motherboards available in September. AMD is working closely with each of these manufacturers to ensure reliable use with the AMD Athlon processor, and will be posting an updated list of recommended motherboards to our website at http://www1.amd.com/athlon/mbl.
By the middle of the September, we anticipate GVC (revision 1.0), Microstar (rev. 1.0B), and FIC (rev. 1.7) will have boards available in limited quantities. Later in September, we expect Asus (rev. 1.03), Gigabyte (rev. 1.0), and Biostar (rev. 1.0) to have boards available in the channel. Of course, we do recommend you use the noted revision or newer for all of these boards. Please work closely with your distributors to secure orders for these boards. These dates are our current prediction of availability, but are approximations that could change. It is important to continually refer to the AMD website for the most updated list of recommended boards that have been tested by AMD.
