Evesham, other UK vendors, intro 750MHz Athlon kit
Problem with high end Pentium availability...
UK vendors are already selling PCs using the AMD Athlon 750MHz processor, introduced today. Both Evesham Micro and Mesh plc have made machines available, the companies confirmed. There are four Evesham Athlon 750MHz machines in the range, said Luke Ireland, director of operations at the company. The TNT 2 machine costs £1,329 and the TNT 2 Ultra costs £1,699. Ireland said: "Athlon machines are selling very well. Virtually all sales of high end machines at the moment are using the AMD Athlon chip. That cannot be said of Intel-based machines." He said there was a problem with availability for Intel parts. Paul Kinsler, general manager at Mesh plc, also agreed that sales of Athlon are going well. He said: "Sales are flying. It's a good proportion of our business." Mesh is selling an Athlon machine for £1,895 in its T range, said Kinsler. ® See also AMD intros 750MHz Athlon, 533MHz K6-2
