AMD says it's having problems to keep up with the high demand for Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors:
A representative from AMD said: "As far as the Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors go we are experiencing an unprecedented demand. We believe that this demand is a testament to the market acceptance of the outstanding dual-core architecture and performance of the AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor."
The phenomenon is being exacerbated by several factors. August is an important month for system integrators as they prepare products for the back to school season. AMD and Intel are currently in the thick of a price war. And Intel is desperately ramping up its nextgen Conroe Dual Core 2s after whipping up demand by seeding review sites with product.
