AMD confirms channel shortages

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
No wonder Opterons for the 939 socket are harshly limited.

Quote:
AN INVESTIGATION by US newspaper Computer Reseller News has confirmed anecdotal reports that AMD cannot supply enough processors to meet channel demand.
And, said the newspaper, that has prompted chip rival Intel to fill the holes by writing to US channel players.

AMD said that there's a problem supplying chips because demand has risen from both OEMs and system builders.

But many system integrators are blaming design wins with Dell as a major reason for the shortages.

While it's possible to get older generation processors, the real strain comes with chips using the desktop AM2 socket.

Intel claims it's a process generation ahead of AMD and producing 65 nanometre chips aplenty.

A recent roadmap seen by the INQ shows that AMD is distinguishing between "strategic" players and other - presumably channel based firms. The situation is exacerbated because over the last four years, AMD has presented itself as a channel champion

That sucks for those who want to reuse their RAM in a new build! My lil bro wanted to do that... Especially cuz he has a budget build and RAM prices are through the roof right now.

Not really bad, just that AMD is selling so many processors that it cant keep up with open channel demand. But once FAB36 gets fully ramped up im sure this wont be a problem.

But I do suppose it can be seen as bad for the consumer.
