Destination AMD heeft een artikel over de K6-III in elkaar gepleurd, helaas wel gedipt in een heel erg vet pro-AMD sausje. Hier een plak info over hoe ze bij Destination AMD denken over de toekomst van de K6-III:
The price is right. The K6-III costs $284 for a 400 MHz version and $476 for a 450 MHz version (in 1000 unit quantities). It performs great. What could go wrong? The K6-III should do great as long as AMD can sort out their manufacturing process and obtain good yields. One other questionable area of the K6-III seems to be its ability to reach clock speeds over 500 MHz. Many analysts say with the current design, clock speeds over 500 MHz will not be easy. AMD representatives rebuke this though, saying the K6-III will be produced past 2000 and will increase in clock speed. Does this mean a transition from a .25 micron process to a .18 micron process for the K6-III is in the future? I doubt has AMD concocted a way to squeeze more speed out of the .25 micron process. But, you never know. After all analysts said socket 7 was dead!
