Danish PC manufacturer first to market with AMD's 64 bit processor  

Amitech hits the streets with 64 bit stationary PC and laptop computers on same day as AMD launches the CPU inside them

On the same day as US company AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) launched its new generation 64 bit processor AMD Athlon 64, Danish PC manufacturer Amitech yesterday launched a new stationary PC and a new portable PC, both containing the aforementioned AMD processor. Amitech is an AMD Launch Partner and according to MD Lars Bjerg, the reason why the company can launch its products on the same day AMD launches the processor is because Amitech produces PCs at its own facilities in Aarhus, hence there is no waiting time for supplies from e.g. the Far East.


Until now PCs have been running on 32 bit processors which were developed in the 1980s. The new AMD Athlon 64 is a lot faster and is also the only existing Windows compatible 64 bit processor. Microsoft is due to launch a new 64 bit version of the operating system Windows XP Professional early 2004. The news is reported by Computerworld online and on Amitech's website.
