Op Tom's Hardware Guide vond ik een stuk over de CeBIT. Hier wat clips:
If anyone expected to find any new and earth shattering information about AMD's K7, he was pretty disappointed. AMD showed a K7 running at 600 MHz again behind closed doors, and the presentation was pretty much the same I had already seen at Comdex last November. There was no performance comparison done, so that I can still not tell you how well it will perform against Intel's Pentium III processor. K7 is still supposed to start shipping sometimes in the second half of June 1999, and it will run on a platform based on AMD's own upcoming K7-chipset. We can still expect a very high performance and clock speeds of more than 600 MHz.
My meeting with Intel didn't produce any big news about their future CPUs, Coppermine is supposedly well on track for the second half of 1999 and until then we're supposed to enjoy the slower and less sophisticated Katmai-version of it, called Pentium III. The most important information was about their anti-overclocking strategy. Now since the new Pentium III CPUs are equipped with an information that can let you check the clock speed it's supposed to run at, there's no real reason for implementations that inhibit overclocking anymore. Remarking Pentium III processors is pretty much pointless, because a simple software from Intel is able to tell its real speed marking. In this context Intel explained that there aren't any plans to implement a clock speed locking into their CPUs for the next three months, they will hang on to their multiplier lock though. Let's hope that this is true, because it would leave the Celeron open for overclocking as well as Pentium II and Pentium III as soon as 133 MHz front side bus becomes reliably available.
