CPU Central heeft een preview van de AMD K7 in elkaar gepleurd. Er zitten ook een paar erg vette foto's van het dingetje bij (hij lijkt erg op een PII).
Hier wat info dat ik eruit geript heb:
AMD claims that the K7 is being engineered on-schedule, and the will be able to deliver the K7 in the first half of next year at clock speeds starting at 500MHz. The K7 will initially make it's debut around early August or late July at .25 micron, and then (hopefully with no delays), move into a .18 micron process around October or November.
How much will it cost? At the moment, no one is absolutely sure. However, since the K7 will probably be able to outperform Intel's extremely expensive Xeon processor, the K7 definitely won't be too cheap. AMD could unfortunately not quote me a price, however, speculative prices are floating on the net that are between $700 and $900, depending on the L2 cache options you choose.
