Meer K7 info

Ik zag bij JC nog meer info ver de K7 presentatie van gisteren. De info hieronder zul je deels al zijn tegengekomen in een nieuwsposting eerder vandaag. Echter ook een aantal nieuwtjes die denk ik wel interessant zijn:

hi, I've just returned the dinner meeting at which Dirk Meyer (VP of Eng. AMD) had a presentation. My first impression is that K7 looks very promising. Mr. Meyer told us that AMD was indeed announcing K7 this month (June '99) at 500, 550 and 600 Mhz. It has 22 Million transistors on a 184 mm square die at .25 micron process.

The first release of K7 will have 512K of L2 cache at half-speed. At 600 MHz, K7 is %115 faster in SpecInt95 than a PIII Xeon 550Mhz with 512K full speed cache. At 550 K7 is %106 faster in SpecInt. At 600MHz, K7 is %143 faster than the same PIII Xeon at SpecFPBase.

At 550Mhz, K7 is %136 faster (these numbers are interpolated visually from a slide which means 143 was closer to 140 than 150). At 3D Winbench 99 V1.2 (null driver) on win98, K7 600 is at %146 faster than the said PIII Xeon using SSE optimizations.

There are new Integer SIMD instructions, DSP type instructions for MP3, AC (audio) etc. and cache prefetch instructions. Microsoft will support 3DNow in an upcoming Visual Studio release.

At the initial launch, there won't be any MP systems. All motherboards (from Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, FIC and one other I couldn't catch) will use AMD chipset. Via, ALI and SIS are designing their own chipsets to be released before the end of this year.

These are most of my notes during the one hour presentation and Q&A afterwards. All errors are my own. I speak only for myself etc., etc. muzo

Update: AMD Zone heeft nog meer info bijeen geraapt in dit handige artikel.

Wijzig sortering
Nou het zit er dik in dat de K7 flink wat rapper zal zijn dan de p3 en al het andere intel gespuis.
Hoe zit het zou eigenlijk met de moederborden. Het wordt tijd dat daar meer duidelijkheid over verschaft gaat worden. Ik heb zelfs gehoord dat je een k7 op een slot1-bx-mobo kan draaien. Er zou wel een BIOS update vereist zijn. De asus p2b-f zou dit kunnen.
Lees de volgende tekst maar:

SUNNYVALE, CA--NOVEMBER 16, 1998--AMD today announced that Acer Laboratories Inc. (ALi) and VIA Technologies plan to deliver optimized, high-performance chipsets designed to support AMD's seventh-generation AMD-K7™ processor. AMD also plans to provide these chipset vendors with validation resources to enhance the compatibility and robust functionality of their chipset solutions.
"ALi's and VIA's announced plans to design and produce chipsets for the AMD-K7 processor is good news not only for AMD but also for the entire computing industry," said S. Atiq Raza, AMD co-chief operating officer and chief technical officer. "The combination of AMD's forthcoming seventh-generation processor and third-party chipsets compatible with the Alpha™ EV6 bus is planned to provide manufacturers of desktop PCs, workstations, and servers with exceptional performance."
"Next-generation processors, such as the new AMD-K7 processor design, from alternative CPU suppliers like AMD can open the door for third-party innovation," said Dr. Chin Wu, president of ALi. "For ALi, the AMD-K7 represents an extraordinary opportunity to innovate at the leading-edge of high-performance chipset design and to be among the first infrastructure suppliers to catch the seventh wave of microprocessor architectures."
"We welcome the opportunity to develop advanced chipset solutions for the AMD-K7 processor," said Wen-Chi Chen, president and CEO of VIA Technologies. "Our decision to support AMD's seventh-generation microprocessor is a natural outgrowth of our longstanding relationship with AMD. We believe that the AMD-K7 processor and optimized chipset products from VIA can set the pace for seventh-generation computing platforms."
About the AMD-K7™ Processor
The AMD-K7 processor with 3DNow!™ technology is a Microsoft® Windows® compatible, seventh-generation design featuring a deeply pipelined, nine-issue superscalar microarchitecture optimized for high clock frequency; a superscalar pipelined floating point unit; 128KB of on-chip level one (L1) cache; a programmable high-performance backside L2 cache interface; and a 200 MHz Alpha EV6 compatible system bus interface with support for scalable multiprocessing. The AMD-K7 processor is slated for introduction in the first half of 1999 and is planned to operate at clock frequencies greater than 500 MHz. A PII mainborts socket convertor and bios patch will also become available this summer.
About ALi
ALi (Acer Laboratories Inc.), founded in 1987, is headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, with its North American/European operations out of its office in San Jose, California.

Cautionary Statement
Investors are cautioned that all forward-looking statements of management's expectations involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations.
Any forward-looking statement about the AMD-K7 processor involves risks and uncertainties including whether the company will be able to introduce the AMD-K7 processor in accordance with its current schedule; the company will be able to produce the AMD-K7 processor at speed grades greater than 500 MHz; and third-party infrastructure suppliers will deliver timely chipset solutions for the AMD-K7 processor. Investors are urged to consult the risks and uncertainties detailed in the company reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Waar zie jij dan staan dat de p2b een k7 aankan?
Dit is te dom voor woorden... INTEL + AMD = ERROR
Hier staat niet dat een P2B(F) een K7 aankan, maar iemand op ICQ vertelde mij dat hij een werkende K7 met eigen ogen had mogen aanschouwen en dat die op een P2B-F draaide. Later kreeg ik bovenstaande text van hem.
Ik vond het zelf ook erg vreemd en het lijkt mij zo ongeveer technisch onmogelijk, maar het kan kennelijk. Misschien is het wel een speciale versie van de K7 die op GTL+ draait?
