AMD heeft z'n doelstelling wat betreft de oktober verkopen van de Athlon moeten bijstellen van 4 miljoen naar 2 miljoen units. Oorzaak is de slechte leverbaarheid van Slot-A moederborden. Hier de info van Ace's Hardware:
CTech Taiwan is reporting that AMD will sell 2 million K7s short of its targeted sales this year, reason being that there is a shortage of motherboards despite of all the K7s AMD has stocked up. AMD Far-East Region Production Manager is quoted as saying that AMD currently has more than 3 or 4 million K7 in stocks. The original target shipment for Oct is 4 million K7s has been reduced to 2 million because of the earthquake in Taiwan hampering production of K7 motherboards. The Production Manager is also quoted as saying that AMD is hoping to sell more than 10 millions of K7s by the end of the year. Now the numbers are a little far-fetched if you ask me, but we shall all get an accurate answer to that hopefully after tomorrow's Conference Call.
