AMD kept up the pressure on Intel by adding the Athlon 64 2800+
processor to its 64-bit lineup on March 30. The new chip, available at US$ 178 in
quantities of 1,000 units, will help boost demand for K8 motherboards built to
support AMD’s Athlon 64 processors. Shipments of K8 motherboards now account for
less than 5% of all AMD-based boards. The launch of the Athlon 64 2800+ chip
will also help AMD penetrate the mainstream market below US$ 200.
