AMD's second quarter offically ends on 6/29(sunday). Since this new product line was announced on monday 6/30/03, it is my understanding that all product currently in the pipeline, cannot be counted as revenue until the third quarter. AMD reports revenue when sold, not when shipped.....am I wrong????
No, you have it right. Thats probably why they waited until today on the announcements.
(Theres some speculation that AMD threw all the negatives they could legally get away with into Q2, and held off most of the product announcements since it wasnt going to match prior guidance anyway, making for a significant improvement in Q3 sales.)
