AMD K7 artikel

EETimes heeft een artikel over de K7 op het net gekwakt. Hier heb je een stukje:

"The K7 will be a success; it will become AMD's bread and butter," predicted Donny Chien, a manager at motherboard giant First International Computer Inc. (Taipei, Taiwan).

But analysts and battle-hardened competitors are less sanguine, warning that even though the K7 processor itself may be a technical success, creating the surrounding infrastructure to support the MPU could be a challenging task, particularly in the commercial market.

The K7 is the company's most powerful and complex assault on Intel's X86 juggernaut yet. The 120-person K7 team completed the design in 17 months, said Dirk Meyer, chief architect of the K7 and a veteran of MPU designs at Intel and Digital Semiconductor. With 500-, 550- and 600-MHz versions already being sampled to many personal computer OEMs, the K7 appears set to move into the real world. And AMD has a system bus, licensed from Digital, which adds to the technical merits of the processor.

[...] "We've had sample K7s along with reference boards since April," said an engineer at a major Taiwan motherboard manufacturer, who asked not to be identified. "Currently, we have both 550- and 600-MHz sample CPUs. We are now on our fourth revision of K7 mainboards, and we expect to go into mass production in August."
