Rumor: More Phenom Delays

As with all rumors, please take the following with a grain of salt:

“Contrary to its earlier statements, AMD has now revealed that its 2.4GHz quad-core Phenom 9700 and 2.6GHz Phenom 9900 have both been delayed until the second quarter of 2008. AMD hasn't said how this will impact the introduction of the 2.8GHz and 3GHz parts that were originally projected for late in Q2, but these will almost certainly be delayed as well.”

We'll keep you updated as we get more information directly from AMD, but we'll keep our fingers crossed that this is a misunderstanding of some sort.

This isn't good at all. Although not quite up to par clock-for-clock in most things, the Phenoms are good competition for cheaper quad-core. In a couple games, it's even better than Intel's at the same clock. Dang yo.

man this is depressing.  I'm trying to upgrade and am hoping to stick with AMD (especially with the uprade prospects of going AM+) but with the new 45nm intel duos coming out in the same/lower price range, being faster, and cooler running then AMD's offerings i may have to reconsider here.  well i'll still wait to see what the market is like after the nforce 780a comes out so hopefully AMD will step up in the next couple of months : /

I'm not surprised, is it honestly so hard for AMD to just give a more realistic timeline? They heavily delayed phenom, gave empty promises on performance numbers, and are now giving us the same thing with higher clocked phenoms. If they atleast just spoke honestly, atleast they would retain some respect. If AMD doesn't get some higher clocked models out quick, I don't see how they are going to make money when Nehalem comes around.
