AMD's channel supply problem finally solved

After over three months of shortages, AMD processors are finally in stock for the Christmas season. The 65nm process did help.

I reiterate my old prediction.

148$ for a 3800+ X2 90nm is a STEAL.

And exactly how has 65nm helped when AMD only just announced them and I've not seen any turn up for sale ?

Lets look how availability is on other AMD CPUs from the same website you linked ?

ATHLON 64 3800+ AM2 2.4GHZ 512KB CACHE 62W 2.0GHZ PIB - 2513 on back order

ATHLON 64 X2 DC 4200 PGA939 2.2GHZ 512KB 90NM 89W 2GHZ PIB - 98 on back order

ATHLON 64 X2 DC 4600+ PGA939 2.4GHZ 512K 90NM 110W 2GHZ PIB - 2042 on back order

ATHLON 64 X2 DC 4600+ AM2 2.4GHZ 1MB 90NM 89W 2GHZ PIB - 2033 on back order

ATHLON 64 X2 DC 4800+ PGA939 2.4GHZ 1MB 90NM 110W 2GHZ PIB - 50 in stock

ATHLON 64 X2 DC 5000+ AM2 2.6GHZ 1MB 90NM 89W 2GHZ PIB - 602 on back order

ATHLON 64 FX62 DC AM2 2.8GHZ 2MB 90NM 125W 2GHZ PIB - 735 in stock

I avoided any entry that had Ordered as needed from Mfg but I can't say I'm convinced by your post.

It's a 90nm part...so how is 65nm helping? Did you find any 65nm parts arriving in significant quantities?

AMD needs to ramp up their volume. They already have Intel beat on price and performance, now they need to cease the market.

Where? I don't see anything "re-iterated" in terms of prediction in this post. As an "IT JOURNALIST", one would think you would have a grasp of language.

It's also good to see AMD has a bunch of low margin parts in stock for Christmas - wouldn't want to have the higher margin ones around, especially this time of year...

AMD reinvented the company and won!

Reading the writing on the wall, it looks like the customer is getting a bargain, too. If not for AMD, we all would be working with 800 mhz celeries!

Great day for AMD!

AMD 65 nanometre parts are with OEMs

Guess Sharikou was right after all... OEM's get 65nm parts first to leave more supply in the channel. nice..

Article states "OUR INFORMATIVE sources confirmed that AMD has already been shipping them 65nm parts for the second week now.
Of course I am talking about some component OEMs who already have their hands on these CPUs. These chaps are now fiddling with the first ones."

and a great day for all PC OEMs,
PC buyers, PC users....exactly why the buyers of chips want a successful AMD.....celeries would
be shoved down our throats without AMD
