AMD Athlons in supply shortage due to surge in demand

Posted on Tuesday, August 24 2004 @ 10:54:47 CEST by


A raise in demand for AMD Athlon CPUs caused a supply shortage in distribution channels in Taiwan, China and Europe. According to sources in the Taiwanese channel this may undermine AMD's opportunity to bump up its market share.
Demand for AMD Athlon processors began to pick up after AMD cut its CPU prices by an average 30% in July, the source noted. The shortage involves the complete lineup of AMD's Athlon processors, including the Athlon 64 2800+, 3000+, 3200+ and the Athlon 64 FX53. In addition, the supply of AMD's recently launched Sempron processors is insufficient, the sources said.
Sources at AMD Taiwan said that the company will be able to replenish their stocks in overseas markets within the next one to two weeks.

It is said that this shortage will make it difficult for AMD to gain market share, since Intel also cut its prices on August 22.
