Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

AMD has warned that it may not be able to supply enough of its 350MHz K6-2 parts. The company formally announced the chip today and priced it at $317/1000. But in a statement which a source close to AMD described as "frighteningly specific", the company gave warnings about both production and distribution of the part. The statement said: "Any forward looking statement involves risks and uncertainties including whether the company will be able to produce and distribute AMD K6-2 processors at higher speed grades." While most US corporations issue cautionary statements, it is rare for chip companies to be this specific. Other risks that AMD think could cause its 350MHz part to falter, include whether its customer base could be expanded. Worldwide economic conditions could also affect the conditions, said AMD. No one from AMD either in the US or the UK could be contacted for comment on its statement. ®
