Thanks goes out to Jay McDougal for sending word that C|Net has an article discussing AMD profits, and a bit on what AMD's CEO had to say on K6-3:
And while the mask problem with the K6-2 is fixed, the current chip architecture may be running out of steam.
Sanders said that the upcoming K6-3 chip will hit 500MHz, but wouldn't predict beyond that.
The K6-2 core, wich is at the heart of the K6-3, was not anticipated to go this fast in the first place.
The Pentium III, by contrast, will be running at over 500MHz by the middle of the year.
