Updated It only took three hours for the Gateway Kremlin to pull references about its support for the Athlon processor from its Website after we posted our story, according to a good number of readers. But this doesn't mean Gateway isn't supporting the Athlon microprocessor. Our informants tell us that the company is still on track to deliver machines. Two insiders from different parts of Gateway have forwarded separate information. According to the first, the original launch date was slated to be the 6th of December last, but Gateway is leveraging its relationship with Intel to get better prices on those chips. And the second informant tells us that he has seen Gateway data sheets on the AMD Athlon. And now, so have we. Now will Gateway accept large sums of money from Intel and can the project completely? We await news with bated breath. Meanwhile, if you click towards this Dell Gigabuys site, there is further evidence of the Athlon... Here's the original story, from the 16th of December Even though neither Gateway nor AMD have yet confirmed they're in a little huddle about Athlon microprocessors, information on the former's Web site seems to confirm that the deal is on. Two weeks ago we were told by a highly placed source at Gateway that it was sending out samples of PCs using the microprocessor. If you point your browser to this URL, you'll see that the support staff are giving advice on installing the Athlon microprocessor in machines. And meanwhile rumours are continuing to fly that Dell is playing around with the Athlon, although other sources close to AMD plans told us that while the companies had "talked", it was probably just a way for the heat to be turned up a little on the Chipzilla front. ®
