We have now received information from highly placed sources within Gateway confirming that it will sell PCs using AMD's Athlon processors. According to our source, the first sample machines using the Athlon processor will start shipping during the course of this week. That represents a major victory for AMD in its current battle with Intel over market share. At the beginning of this week, AMD announced that it was shipping a 750MHz processor. Intel had persuaded Gateway earlier this year to be an all-Intel company by offering it a rather handsome incentive in the shape of a $50 rebate on all of the processors it bought. But, recently, Intel pulled the rug on that deal, meaning there was no reason for Gateway not to use AMD processors any more. ® See also AMD share price soars, Intel's relaxes
