Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

One barometer of how well Intel is executing is by looking at Web sites that sell components. At the end of last month, we checked out UK firm SMC Direct, which has a convenient page for Intel processors and a similar one for AMD chips. At that time, it appeared that the Intel shortage was to be fixed by the 17th of March, but a look today shows that date has been put forward to the 24th of March. The Intel page in question can be found here. There are more 733MHz Intel processors around than last time, but still not a great deal. One large European system builder which supplies machines with both AMD and Intel chips said: "Intel appear to have become the Ford of the Microprocessor market. You can have any processor you like as long as it's a Pentium III 600 Coppermine with 256K cache and now they are starting to go short." He suggested that large manufacturers, especially the Dell Corporation, were getting priority for Intel's chip deliveries. "Boy I am glad we didn't submit to Intel pressure and went with Athlon," he said. As we also reported recently, Athlons are also now in somewhat short supply. The AMD page, which you can find here, shows a temporary shortage for 700, 750, 800 and 850MHz Athlons. ®
