CHIP FIRM AMD has moved to squish rumours it's in trouble shipping Phenoms and Opteroons.

In a statement, the firm reiterated its position at the Q3 conference call.

It said during that call that AMD would ship "hundreds of thousands of quad-core processors" into the server and desktop segments during Q4".

AMD said it's "tracking" to that guidance.

As for the bug, AMD said it released a BIOS fix before the November 19th launch and is "experiencing strong AMD Phenom demand and is shipping parts to channel, system builders and OEM customers."

And, it concluded: "In addition to the strong demand for quad-core AMD processors, AMD also continues to see strong demand for dual-core AMD Opteron processors. To highlight this demand, the recent Q307 server numbers from IDC show growth in share for AMD-based server products in both U.S. and WW x86 system sales. In fact, in WW x86 4P sales, AMD saw a 3.4% quarter over quarter increase." µ
