Ook Sharky Extreme heeft een review van AMD's K6-3.
Hier wat stuff over de performance van de K6-3 ten opzichte van Intel's Katmai:
One area in comparing the Intel Katmai CPUs and the AMD K6-3 CPUs that really is no comparison concerns their expected prices. Most industry analysts believe that the high end Katmai, the 500MHz variant, will debut in late February at a price point somewhere between $700 and $760. The slower 450MHz Katmai CPU is expected to debut on the same day as its faster partner, albeit with less cost, somewhere between approximately $525 and $600.
The AMD K6-3 400 CPU we tested for this article is expected to debut at the price we listed above, which is between $325 and $375. The higher speed K6-3 450 if able to be produced in the necessary yields, is estimated to cost between $425 and $500 at the time of its introduction.
Now we're no rocket scientists here at SharkyExtreme, that much is certain. But even we can do the simple math here and determine that the K6-3 400 and 450 CPUs will offer a strong price advantage over the Katmai CPUs, and will offer a comparative level of performance in both the gaming and business environment at that time provided that 3DNow! support is implemented in the apps.
When titles and applications debut that directly support the KNI instruction set, it's possible that the Intel Katmai CPUs could establish a higher level of performance that only the upcoming AMD K7 CPU could compete with or possibly exceed. Without having a hands-on look at the Katmai, along with applications that are KNI-enabled, we have no way of knowing at this time if that will be the case.
