AMD can't make enough chips
Posted on: 10/27/2006 12:05 PM

There was some speculation a few weeks ago about AMD's inability to get their processors into the channel due to the demands of supplying Dell the kind of volume it needs. Today, well, there is more speculation.
Mercury Research is warning that AMD will have problems shipping its chips for a while. According to News.com, Mercury Research says that AMD is facing a crisis where its overall demand is rising before new manufacturing technologies were completely ready to cope.

Perhaps AMD is starting to regret making Dell its 'strategic partner', angering its existing channel and being forced to supply Michael's tin boxes with chips it has not got. The Dell deal, while looking good on paper, is soaking up most of the outfit's capacity.
