AMD (AMD): Is Its New Chip Late?

The Inquirer is reporting that the new AMD (AMD) multi-core Barcelona chip is shipping late.

The chip was scheduled to go to market in mid-August, and it has apparently not shown up, nor has AMD given a delivery date.

The news, if accurate, is more trouble for the already bloodied company. Intel (INTC) recently announced that it was moving up its new quad-core chips, essentially getting them to market early to compete with Barcelona. The larger company has also indicated that it will be offering the product at relatively low price points, putting pressure on AMD’s already low margins.

At $12.50, AMD trades at the bottom of its 52-week price range
