Phenom 9700 delayed till second quarter

AMD’s upcoming quad-core Phenom 9700 CPU has been delayed, due to a translation look aside buffer bug. The processor is now due to be launched in the second quarter of 2008.

The sources state that AMD is confident that it has solved the bug in the B3 stepping revision, yet the sources are unclear if the CeBIT show will mark the official launch of the products.
