Ik kwam nog een leuk nieuwsberichtje tegen bij The Register. Check it:
The AMD K7 chip, aka Athlon, looks set to enter the market with a bang this August, though many PC builders fear Intel's wrath should they choose to use it.
Among those launching Athlonian PCs are Compaq and Bolton-based reseller Dabs Direct. Dell, Viglen and Tiny Computers all told The Register they will stay 100 per cent loyal to Intel.
Others who are planning to adopt the K7 chip, but asked not to be named for fear of the great Satanís reaction, expected Athlon to be a lower-cost alternative to the Pentium III.
Athlon is also expected to be around 25 per cent cheaper than the equivalent speed of Intel chip for 500 and 550Mhz variants, according to Dabs Direct. It has been told its first K7 500/550Mhz orders will be delivered mid-to-end August 1999.
