11/5/2003 - Solution providers can purchase processors over the phone or configure fully validated AMD Athlon(TM) 64 processor-based systems in minutes at http://www.quicksource.avnet.com/

Avnet Computing Components -- an AMD Athlon(TM) 64 processor authorized distributor -- announced the immediate availability of AMD Athlon 64 and AMD Athlon 64 FX processors through Avnet, in conjunction with the worldwide launch of the AMD Athlon 64 processor family.

"Solutions providers interested in taking advantage of AMD Athlon 64 processor technology can do so in one of two ways through Avnet," said George Condon, president of Avnet Computing Components. They can order the full line of AMD processors over the phone at 1-888-300-8277, or they can custom-configure their own AMD Athlon 64 processor-powered white box desktop through our online configurator at http://www.quicksource.avnet.com/.

QuickSource is an online configuration tool that allows solution providers to create customized, fully validated AMD Athlon 64 processor-based white box systems in minutes. A self-guided demonstration of the tool is available at http://www.quicksource.avnet.com/. Through an intuitive, easy-to-use interface, QuickSource customers can choose from the most trusted name-brand components from AMD, MSI, Hitachi, Micron, Fujitsu, Newisys and others as they build the exact solution for their customers' requirements.

"Best of all," added Condon, "all combinations are fully validated, and can ship as a kit for customers to assemble themselves, or as a fully integrated solution ready to plug in right out of the box. Either way, QuickSource orders ship in as little as 72 hours, based on product availability."

"AMD Athlon 64 processors provide the power and performance for some of today's most demanding applications and we're working with Avnet to help make sure this technology is available to the public," said Tim Wright, director, desktop marketing, AMD's Computation Products Group. "The AMD64 platform offers compatibility with today's 32-bit software and the ability to tap powerful 64-bit processing as needed."
