"According to sources from motherboard manufacturers, AMD may be delaying their Phenom line of processors until 2008"
Published: 2nd July 2007 | Source: DigiTimes |
Originally planned to be released sometime in November of this year, AMD's Phenom processors look to be having their release date pushed back to Quarter 1 of next year.
|AMD intends to modify its process technology to increase the yield rate and frequencies of Phenom processors in order to improve the competitiveness of the CPUs against Intel's Penryn family, said the sources. AMD has already notified several motherboard makers that Phenom will now begin test-production in November or December, and will launch in first quarter of 2008, noted the sources.|
A possibly unforeseen consequence for AMD from this delay is that motherboard manufacturers have made plans to decrease shipments of AM2+ boards and increase those of the Intel platform.
