JC heeft geruchten over een mogelijke 1/3 L2 cache speed divider op de K7:
Ooh! Many thanks to Bud Grise for letting me know of this press release. I don't remember if I've seen it or put it up before, but according to it, Motorola has "greater than 333MHz" SRAM out in general availability. This leads to the possibility that we might see our friend, the K7, out with a 1/2x MHz L2 multiplier. As you should recall, the K7 was originally conceived to have 1/3x MHz L2, mostly due to the uncertainty of SRAM availability in 1999. With faster SRAMs becoming more available in recent times, there has been some speculation that there may be different "versions" of the K7 with different L2 clock rates at the same CPU clock rate (and, well, lower prices for the lower MHz L2 versions of the processor). But, anyway, the nitty-gritty here is that Motorola's new 333MHz+ SRAM makes 1/2x MHz L2 in the K7 quite a bit more likely.
