I have been trying for the past 2 months to buy an AMD X2 Dual Core AM2 Athlon 64 5200+ 2.6 GHz processor Part No:ADA5200CSBOX or an AMD X2 Dual Core AM2 Athlon 64 5000+ 2.6GHz Part No:ADA5000CUBOX.
2 companies that advertise these 2 processors, but show them as waiting stock have promised me dates, but they have passed and the dates are moving closer and closer towards the end of the year. I understand that both these processors have been released, yet no-one seems to have them in stock....are AMD holding back for the Christmas market? Or can perhaps someone explain why these processors are just not available.
Well I've always been an AMD person and I've bought the motherboard, graphics card and ram to work all together with the least problems. The processor was ordered at the same time from the same company...now I don't particularly want to send it all back. I suppose I'll just have to wait and hope my components are not out-of-date by the time is arrives. :(
I have had an AMD 5000 machine on order since August from Evesham. They are waiting for processors and informed me today that they now have a further delay. They have been assured delivery on 5th October and to me by the 11th - not that it helps you but I thought you might be interested.
