DigiTimes reports Asian motherboard makers indicate AMD's Athlon 64 X2 3800+ and the Athlon 64 3000+ are in short supply in the Asia-Pacific region. AMD claims the shortage will easy within one to two weeks.
According to AMD, the Athlon 64 3000+ line is presently the mainstay of its mid-range and high-end 64-bit CPUs, whereas its Athlon 64 X2 3800+ line targets the low-end segment of the dual-core processor market. Better-than-expected demand for the two processors has resulted in lower downstream channel inventory levels, AMD explained, adding that the shortage could ease after one week at the earliest.
