The rumours that Advanced Micro Devices cannot ship enough six-core AMD Phenom II X6 “Thuban” microprocessors already showed up last month. But this week they resurrected as mainboard makers are now complaining that their latest products are not selling well due to shortages of AMD’s latest chip.

Thanks to relatively affordable price, high performance, excellent prospects and TurboCore dynamic overclocking technology, AMD Phenom II X6 central processing units (CPUs) are very popular on the channel market these days. Considering that enthusiasts who buy the “latest and greatest” microprocessors also acquire latest mainboards based on the AMD 800-series chipsets, the demand towards the latter also increased.

Unfortunately, the shortage of six-core processor has affected the sales of AMD 800-series chipsets motherboards and has also impacted its own plans, reports DigiTimes web-site.

Due to recovery of the global economy, both AMD and Intel Corp., the two main suppliers of microprocessors in the world, are in tight supply of certain CPU models. Still, provided that the yields of the six-core code-named Thuban chips are high enough, it is a good news for AMD that the demand towards its premium microprocessors is increasing.

AMD did not comment on the news-story.
