AMD Phenom processors hit delays

Phenom CPU delays

In another setback for AMD, a forthcoming pair of its new Phenom processors have been delayed, sources out of Taiwan indicate. The company had been hoping to ship its quad-core 9700 and 9900 CPUs in early 2008, but these will now purportedly arrive sometime in the second quarter of the year. There is also a possibility the company's triple-core Toliman chip may be delayed, but as of press time, it was still expected to ship on schedule.

The issue with the 9700 and 9900 is said to be a glitch in the chips' translation lookaside buffers, which AMD has been trying to resolve for some time. The company cannot afford to delay too long; Intel is likely to release 45nm quad-core CPUs in the first quarter, beating out AMD's 65nm technology. The latter party has not made any official announcements of a delay. [via DigiTimes]
