Jippie, nog een preview van de processor die Intel's PIII in z'n broekie zal doen pissen:
AMD has a very complex plan to release its fine new baby, and it all revolves around their Fab facilities and Engineering department pulling through. Their elaborate plan involves 2 different builds of the processor. Their first processor, will be the K7 (or something like that). This will be decked with the EV6 bus, the high speed 128Kb L1 cache, and all the other goodies, but will be on a .25 micron die, and will use the normal "silicon" technology. This first processor will come out at a clock speed higher than 500 MHz (perhaps as high as 600mhz as a model AMD displayed at CeBit was, not overclocked I might add) and will blow away anything that Intel has, even though it is still using fairly standard technology. AMD has hinted that this first release will not be put into high production, and will mainly be for large businesses and server use. Now, this doesn't mean that your average Joe won't be able to buy one, it just means that it will be slightly difficault to. [Though Phoenix will be camped outside of the local AMD distributor and robbing the first shipment that comes out].
De rest vind je in de K7 preview van PC Paradox.
