EB News heeft een verhaaltje over chipsets voor de K7. Ze zeggen dat VIA en ALi single-processor-chipsets gaan maken, en dat AMD zorgt voor de multi-processor-chipsets.
According to executives at chipset maker Via Technologies Inc., AMD will develop and ship a small number of high-end core logic chipsets for systems that use two or more K7s running in parallel. Via, meanwhile, will design and supply single-processor chipsets for the higher-volume, "value-oriented" mass market, according to Dean Hays, director of marketing for Via's U.S. operations in Fremont, Calif.
Likewise, Acer Laboratories Inc. (ALi) will also focus on uniprocessor K7 chipsets. "It probably won't be in the multiprocessor market, since our focus is on the mainstream, high-volume market," said Nancy Hartsoch, vice-president of sales and marketing for ALi, San Jose.
