AMD Athlon lineup in shortage, surge in demand follows price cuts
A surge in demand for Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Athlon processors has caused a supply shortage in the channels in Taiwan, China and Europe, and this may undermine AMD's opportunity to boost its market share, according to sources in the Taiwan channel.
Demand for AMD Athlon processors began to pick up after AMD cut its CPU prices by an average 30% in July, the source noted. The shortage involves the complete lineup of AMD's Athlon processors, including the Athlon 64 2800+, 3000+, 3200+ and the Athlon 64 FX53. In addition, the supply of AMD's recently launched Sempron processors is insufficient, the sources said.
While acknowledging the supply shortage, sources at AMD Taiwan said that the parent company will be able to replenish the stocks in overseas markets within the next one to two weeks.
The shortage will make it more difficult for AMD to boost its market share since rival Intel also cut the prices of its socket LGA775 Pentium 4 processors on August 22, market sources said.
