AMD had begun shipping faster desktop Athlons and Durons ahead of next week's launch.

The chips have certainly gone on sale in Japan's Akihabara electronics shopping zone, according to an item over at Japanese Web site PC Watch, which has seen them in six stores.

The site shows an in-street add for the upcoming 1.4GHz Athlon, based not on the latest Palomino core but the older Thunderbird chip. The part supports a 266MHz frontside bus. Prices range from ¥33,800 to ¥37,800 ($283.58-317.14).

The 1.4GHz Athlon almost certainly represents the last new T'bird AMD will release before Palomino-based Athlons come in for desktop systems next quarter.

The site also mentions the 950MHz Duron, which is retailing for ¥14,800 ($124.17). ®
