The glitch that prevented PC manufacturer Gateway from shipping 1GHz Thunderbird Athlon chips has now been fixed, according to US reports.

The problem, which AMD always maintained was nothing to do with their process problem, affected the firm around three weeks ago.

But, according to Electronic Buyers' News, the fault was in Gateway's own mobo - the Jabil.

After tweaking the design, the firm has now picked up where it left off, and is selling T'birds, the report said. ®
