AMD talks about processor shortages

Over the last few weeks, reports of AMD processor shortages have run rampant. Dell has said they have had a good supply of chips from the CPU maker, but others have said that the company's higher-end parts are difficult to come by for both OEMs and at retail. Ars talked to Stephen DiFranco, AMD corporate VP of marketing, and John Taylor, director of product communication, to get the scoop on what's causing the channel problems the CPU maker has been experiencing lately.

DiFranco says that the main issue is stronger-than-anticipated consumer demand which has peaked ahead of time. "Typically, the channel prefers a lot of inventory in December," DiFranco said. "This year we have seen demand spike earlier than anticipated, and our engineering inventory has been off."
