- Yes, there is indeed a K6-2+ plan and it has been there for a while already, but it is not a definite plan yet.
- If K6-2+ comes out at all, it will like what C't reported, not slated for 1999 release. In other words, it will have a relatively short lifespan, I am guessing 6 months, before AMD moves Athlon Select down to the low-cost market.
- No, K6-2+ is not meant to replace K6-III, but on the contrary, if it comes out, it will replace K6-2. So, we will see K6-III 500 and there are higher Mhz K6-IIIs planned
- Remember I said a while back that we may see K6-x family moving to 133 Mhz FSB? That may happen in conjuction with K6-2+: Rumor has it that we may see K6-2+ paired with Super-7 running at 133Mhz FSB but without the L3 (or L2) cache on the motherboard. Essentially a Celeron-like system. It is yet uncertain if we will see this configuration for the desktop or just for the mobile systems.
Verder zegt Ace's dat AMD op het Microprocessor Forum (8 oktober) de server en workstation versie van de Athlon voor zal stellen (Athlon Ultra?). Ook zal rond die tijd waarschijnlijk een 700MHz versie worden gereleased.
