Taipei Changes that Transmeta is making to the specifications of its Crusoe microprocessors have forced FIC to delay its Aqua 3200, it has emerged.

FIC, a large Taiwanese mobo manufacturer, splashed out on two wooden dummies of the machine at Computex in June, and caught the interest of delegates and the world press.

At that time, sources at FIC, which is a major supplier to Compaq and some other big PC vendors, suggested the machine would roll in October.

It won't roll now until quarter one of next year, a different source from the firm told The Register today.

According to FIC, Transmeta has recently modified its design and this has caused the delay. ®
