Having trouble tracking down an AMD hexacore CPU? According to DigiTimes, citing its sources with motherboard OEMs, AMD is having a supply issue with getting enough of the Phenom II X6 CPU to consumers.
If this is true, it's not a necessarily a bad thing for AMD as consumers are taking quite well to the six-core part and the value it presents.
Motherboard makers aren't pleased with the supposed chip shortage, as it has affected the demand of 800-series motherboards. The shortage of the hexacore chip may have also affected the supply schedule of quad-core AMD CPUs including the Phenom II 960T.
Have you had trouble putting together a new, shiny AMD system due to supply issues?
