* Slashdot: AMD fighting chip fraud

Slashdot's discussing the InternetNews story that AMD's lost focus on the new Alchemy chipset in focusing on a Taiwanese shop that was remarking Athlon XP processors.

From the story on InternetNews:

The practice, as "re-marking," involves resellers and/or distributors who may purchase less expensive processors that are rated at lower clock frequencies and then re-mark them at higher clock frequencies for resale.

Tech industry site X-bit labs reported Saturday many of the fakes were headed for South Asian markets but some of the SKUs may have landed in Germany. Representatives with AMD were not immediately available for comment.
Ouch.
