"As early as August 18th, reports began to surface in the PC industry’s various online publications regarding the cause of this motherboard shortage, as well as the inexplicable lack of interest of motherboard manufacturers to design and produce boards for this hot new CPU."
Follow this link if you would like to sign a petition requesting support for the Athlon.

No, we aren’t talking about the dogs. We are talking about memory prices. Spot pricing continues to fluctuate. This article is publishing that spot prices have stayed double the contract pricing AND that contract pricing is continuing to rise. Boo Hiss.
Contrarian to the end — we keep holding out that panic buying is the cause of the inflated prices. Once common sense starts to settle into the minds of the brokers — we’ll see prices on memory drop.
- Good morning !
Howdy – did you have a wonderful weekend? Great ! We spent the weekend working and catching up on everyone’s orders. Athlon sales continue to climb in percentages. The addition of the Biostar product has helped Athlon Sales.
We are still testing the Gigabyte motherboard and Microstar board. We took the Microstar board home for our DVD movie test. Using the Sigma Designs DVD decoder and NT workstation 4.0, we watched "Absolute Power." Well, the dogs slept.
We did find an IRQ conflict that didn’t show up until after we started the movie. We removed the 3Com NIC, and were able to watch the movie without the blue screen of death.
AMD states that an IRQ document is being prepared for their website. It should be available next week.
