It is being reported that AMD might end up delaying
the release of the Turion 64 X2, a chip eagerly anticipated by fans but apparently with “slower than expected” demand in the notebook market.
AMD has postponed the launch of the Turion 64 X2, its first 64-bit dual-core processor for notebooks, to June 2006, instead of May 9 as originally planned, sources at Taiwan notebook manufacturers indicated. The push back of the launch date was due to a slower-than-expected demand in the worldwide notebook market caused by Microsoft's delayed launch of its Vista operating system, according to the sources.
Delaying the release further probably won't affect AMD
much, as Intel has already beaten them to the punch with mobile dual core, but it still can't help any.
