AMD K8 (Athlon 64) to ship in August

DigiTimes reports that AMD is likely to start small-scale shipments of its long-awaited Athlon 64 processor in August, a month earlier than originally planned.

 

According to AMD, it has not changed the launch schedule. However, sources at first-tier motherboard companies such as Asustek Computer and Gigabyte Technology confirmed that AMD disclosed that it will begin supplying two desktop-use Athlon 64 processors, the 3100+ and 3400+, in August. However, given that shipments will reach only a projected 200,000-300,000 units by year-end, board makers expect little impact on Pentium 4-platform products in the short run.
