Athlon K7 mobo petition gains momentum

Asks firms to show no fear of...err someone or other

A group of hardware sites is petitioning makers of motherboards in Taiwan to show their whole-hearted support for AMD's Athlon K7 microprocessor.

The petition, which can be found here, follows continued allegations that the Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers are under pressure not to market their Athlon offerings.

Those are allegations that both Intel and AMD have publicly denied over the last few months. So far, the petition has gained support from 12,736 people, and is supported by hardware sites ChipGeek, JC's News and Links, AMDInsider , Trioptik Technologies, Peter Blake's Homepage, 3D Accelerated Gaming, The Freelancer, and CNews.dk.

The petition asks the Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers to publicly pledge support and also to market the Athlon K7. ®
