K6-III drought continues – but not in Japan

Why launch something if you can't supply it?

SANS - Survey on application security programs

The K6-III is still in desparately short supply in Europe, The Register has learned. A letter from AMD to a dealer confirms that there are problems supplying the parts. AMD said yesterday: "The K6-III is unfortunately not yet available from stock (and the K6-III Processor-in-a-Box hasn't been launched yet), but the AMD-K6-2/450AHX will become available (from stock!) during this week." However, you can get K6-IIIs in Japan. A reader from there has supplied these prices: K6-III/450 Y67,800 and the K6-III/400 Y39,800. For some reason, chips seem to reach Japan well before the US and Europe. Check out this Japanese price list, which also lists the MII-366 from Cyrix (sigh). Two weeks ago, at the Intel Developer Forum, The Register had lunch with Pat Gelsinger, senior VP at the corporation. He claimed then that AMD only had limited supplies of processors and could not possibly meet demand at its current fabrication plants. ®
