AMD chips in short supply in Asia

Athlon 64 3000+ and X2 3800+ processors are in short supply in the Asia-Pacific region. Higher than expected demand has apparently lowered supply levels, and the shortage could last for a couple of weeks. There's no word on whether the shortage will expand to other regions, or how AMD plans to deal with the higher demand for its processors. AMD's production capacity should expand considerably with the opening of its Fab 36 manufacturing facility next month, though. Fab 36 is apparently capable of producing 13,000 300mm wafers per month, with room to expand, as well.
