AMD Phenom processor to face more delays?

Posted on Monday, December 24 2007 @ 14:45:29 CET by


Sources at Taiwanese motherboard makers claim AMD will further delay its high-end Phenom processors, including the 9700 and 9900. The site says these parts may be pushed back to the second quarter of 2008 instead of early 2008.
However, whether AMD's triple-core Toliman series CPUs will also see delay will be the key decision for the company, since Toliman offers a high price/performance ratio compared with Intel's quad-core CPUs. A delay for Toliman will hurt AMD the most, noted the sources.

The sources commented that the reason for the delay of 9700 and 9900 is because AMD has not yet been able to solve the translation lookaside buffer (TLB) erratum found in the chips. However, they added in saying that, in the long-term, AMD's decision is correct since pushing products that are not ready will only hurt the company more.
