The Register heeft via een AMD engineer Winmark FPU benchmarks weten te verkrijgen. Hier de info uit de nieuws posting:
An engineer at AMD has leaked details of internal FPU (floating point unit) Winmarks on the up and coming K7 to The Register.
But at the same time he has said he is disappointed at the management and production problems at the firm.
The engineer, who insists on strict anonymity, said that the K7 running at 500MHz has an FPU Winmark of 2767. That compares to a Pentium III/500 which, he says, has an FPU Winmark of around 2562.
He said that he wanted to make clear that while AMD's technology is impressive, management "always give an optimistic outlook but then turn around and execute poorly."
Dat vind ik toch teleurstellende resultaten :(. We mogen hopen dat AMD de performance van de K7 in de komende maanden nog wat op weet te krikken...
