Mobile application security vulnerability report

AMD has responded to accusations it cannot produce enough K6-2s by delivering comprehensive figures which it claims vindicates its stance. A source close to AMD gave facts and figures showing how many wafers it had made and chips it had shipped. According to the source, close to senior AMD executives in the US, in the second quarter of 1998 it produced 2.67 million K6 parts. In the third quarter, he said, additional production was between one half and one million units. According to him, Q3 was entirely made up of hundreds of thousands of 350MHz K6-2 parts. In quarter four, he added, AMD will produce "substantial volumes" of the 400MHz part that is expected. Total volume of K6 production in 1998 was 12 million units, he said. In 1999, AMD will produce 20 million units. The cautionary statements AMD made last week, he said, were purely cautionary, given the figures he gave. Intel refuses to give any figures about wafers it creates or parts it ships. ®
