I knew this would happen:
THE PHILIPPINES Inquirer said that raids in a number of locations in the country yielded a collection of re-marked AMD microprocessors, and the likelihood is there's more not only in Asia but in Europe.
Earlier this week, we heard from a source here in the UK that a number of re-marked AMD microprocessors were being sold in retail, but a representative of the firm said that he had no knowledge of such fakes.
The AMD rep said that while the firm had no objection to individuals overclocking their own processor, large scale re-marking would be stamped on, and hard.
The Philipines Inquirer said that last month simultaneous raids were carried out both in Asia and in Europe, with counterfeits circulating in the marketplace.
