Gordon Bell's commercial asynchronous processor exists.
Gordon Bell has offered $1000 for a fully asynchronous processor that is commercially available on April Fools day, 2000.
The claim is YES if Gordon Bell pays the $1000, however our understanding of the challenge is that
To be `commercially available' means it must be produced in volume using a standard process (e.g. MOSIS-fabbed designs do not count). The notion of a `standard process' is undefined; In principle `standard process' means that a second source for the designs could be acquired. The existence of such a second source is not required for the claim.
The claim is independent of the required operating temperature of the design (e.g. Martin's previous asynchronous efforts count if it were fabbed `commercially').

I will judge based on the wording of the claim unless it is found to be ambiguous. Such ambiguities will be resolved based on my perception of the author's intent.
