Apple and AMD Hammer

The Inquirer posts more rumors regarding Apple and AMD's relationship...

    The galley gossip is that Apple has placed an order for Hammerish chipolatas but it won't launch possibly until early 2004 when Microsoft Palladium comes like a thief in the night for all X86 CPUs everywhere.

Also mentioned is that there would be no standalone Marklar (OS X on x86) -- which would mean Apple-branded AMD boxes.

The Inquirer has had a poor record in past rumors.
