JC heeft een FAQ bij elkaar geraapt over de K7, waar alle reeds bekende info over de K7 in verzameld is. Goeie info, hier heb je een stuk over de prijs van de K7:
The price of the K7 is a big unknown blot in a sea of misinformation. So far, we've had estimates of the 500MHz part hitting $800 at startup (courtesy Sharky's, of course), and of the same part hitting around $250 at intro (this one's from techweb, I recall). In reality, I think we can expect the K7 to be priced reasonably close to parity with similarly L2-cached P6 parts, perhaps somewhat above. PIII-500 currently runs for as low as $450. I'm told that Intel's most recent price drop just occurred, so I think it would be logical to assume that the K7-500 will be above $400 when announced (at least if it were on pricewatch).
One bit that seems to be too oft-forgotten ist he motherboards. I've heard guesses as high as north of $300 for Slot-A boards. Surely, Slot-A is packed with some pretty advanced (for x86, that is) technology, and probably costs more to produce than the Slot-1 boards, especially given that it is using an untried-for-consumer-market EV-6 architecture. I presume that prices may start around $200, just as the Slot-1 boards started. I get the impression, however, that the current boards are built with cutting costs in mind, so I can accept some boards starting perhaps $150. Then again, I could be totally wrong and we could see $110 Slot-A boards popping up right away!
