AMD predicts huge jump in turnover

K6-2 and K6-7 to boost growth, claims CEO

The CEO of chip company AMD said yesterday that he expected revenues to soar over the coming years as the company rolls out a range of new products. Jerry Sanders told financial analysts that sales next year could amount to $3.7 billion, rising to $4.4 billion in 2000 and nearly $6 billion in 2001, according to reports. The San Jose Mercury News reported that AMD will have shipped as many as 14 million K6-2s by Q2 next year. Its Sharptooth technology, expected next year, will also capture market share in the small and medium business sector. ®
