Onze vrienden van The Register vroegen een aantal Engelse resellers naar de verkoopcijfers van hun Athlon systemen. De resultaten die zij bijeen harkten zijn hoopgevend voor AMD:
One source said AMD was stealing customers from Intel thanks to the Athlon range and Intel supply chain problems.
"Customers who wouldn't usually look at AMD are definitely buying the Athlon. AMD seems to be a bit ahead of the pack at the moment," he said.
One system builder said AMD now accounted for 50 per cent of its sales, compared to being virtually 100 per cent Intel last year at this time.
