Am I missing something people? Around a day after DDRZONE writes their piece on AMD's problems, what exactly do they do? According to Cnet, AMD has now delayed the hammer for desktops... :figures:

The delay on Clawhammer, which was originally slated to come out in the first quarter of 2002, should heat up the competitive atmosphere of the microprocessor market in 2003. AMD has stated that Clawhammer will outperform Intel's best chips and pave the way for AMD to get its processors into the corporate environment. The holdup, though, could erode any performance advantages to Clawhammer, especially as Intel has encountered few problems in ratcheting up the speed of its chips in the past year.
