AMD unable to deliver enough Phenom II X6 chips

Posted on Friday, May 14 2010 @ 19:15:20 CEST by

KitGuru heard rumors that demand for AMD's new Phenom II X6 processors is much higher than GlobalFoundries is able to deliver.
Supplies of the Phenom II X6 1090 have been bled dry, back orders placed and (we’re told) there’s little chance of seeing more product in the channel until the end of June.

The strange thing is that the ‘win’ for multi-core technology is not always clear. Certainly looking at the initial reviews of X6 systems, the mainstream press seem unconvinced. Tech sites that were seeded with 1090/890 combinations seem happier. So what’s the cause of the drought?

We’re prepared to believe this AMD sell out has been caused by a combination of greed for multi-national orders and the F-X Factor.
