Carrera, Evesham Micros, Mesh and Time Computers will be among PC builders launching machines with AMD's 850MHz Athlon chip. Carrera is adding an 850MHz machine to its existing Octan range of Athlon machines from the chip's launch date of 14 February. Evesham Micros will be offering four 850MHz Athlon PCs from March -- the TNT 2, TNT 2 Plus, GeForce and GeForce DDR.
"AMD can hold its own and now beat Intel in the megahertz race," said Luke Ireland, operations director at Evesham.
"The ever increasing demands of gamers means that AMD is now considered the vendor of choice in this highly competitive market."
