Thunderbirds, Durons are go…

We wonder, lonely as a cloud

According to our friends at c't, AMD will roll out their T'birds on 5 June at Computex in Taipei. We'll be attending that show... But Big Blue seems to have jumped the gun, according to this incredibly long URL on the Aptiva page.

Over at AMD Zone, there are a number of posts concerning the close relationships occurring between Cheapzilla and various Taiwanese manufacturers.

And Ace's Hardware confirms the ramp of the Durons and the T'birds, with some interesting sightings of product also being available in various spots around the world.

But there won't be any support from big North American distributor for these AMD chips. News arrives that this firm is discontinuing component distributorship to concentrate on its core business.

At Tom's Hardware, there is an interesting piece on the effect of the Intel MTH debacle on its customers. As the authors rightly point out, this is not going to be an isolated incident by any means. We'll explore the ramifications of the recall in more detail during the course of this weekend. ®
