Ars Technica heeft een artikel gepost waarin nogmaals de info wordt samengevat die de afgelopen dagen over de K7 bekend is geworden:
The take? This processor looks like it's gonna be a winner, and then some. Looks can be deceiving, however. We wouldn't be proper reporters if we didn't highlight the fact that AMD needs this success to survive. It wouldn't be right to fail to mention that investors are angry, the media is hungry, and AMD is desperate for faith in its company. If AMD can deliver on the manufacturing side of things (something AMD has had serious troubles with in the past), we could be in for a great end to '99. If 500MHz represents the bottom end of this new design, the .18 micron fab that's forthcoming means that AMD should be able to stretch this processor long enough to actually make some money. Or so we hope. And man, that's a lot of 'if's, eh?
