Chumbo to Host AMD 3DNow! Technology Aisle

Minneapolis-based Chumbo.com signed a marketing agreement with Advanced Micro Devices and will launch and host an AMD 3DNow! Technology Aisle in its chumbo.com software store.

The aisle will be stocked with software optimized for the AMD-K6(R)-2 and AMD- K6-III processors featuring 3DNow! technology. The 3DNow! Technology Aisle on Chumbo.com will also be accessible directly through the AMD Web site. Financial arrangements were not disclosed.

"We chose to work with Chumbo.com based on the ability of its e-commerce technology and its Internet expertise. This agreement offers our 3DNow! ISV partners with a direct sales channel for optimized software to owners of PCs using AMD processors with 3DNow! technology," said Dana Krelle, vice president of marketing at AMD.

Building on the success of its online retail site, Chumbo.com said it is actively pursuing its business-to-business OEM strategy. AMD joins Chumbo's other top OEM partners, including IBM, 3Dfx, nVIDIA and Apple.
