AMD has formally announced the introduction of its 400MHz K6-2 chip. And the company claimed that Compaq, which uses the chip have combined forces to offer the first broadband Internet-ready PCs. That might be true in the US but there are still problems with DSL technology in Europe, as reported here earlier. Introduced today, the Presario 5190 and Presario 5100c series, with Compaq’s 1.5Mb Max Digital modem, are powered by the AMD-K6-2/400 processor. K6-2 processors operate at speeds of 400, 380 and 366 MHz. Rana Mainee, AMD Europe market planning manager, claimed the introduction of the 400MHz chip put AMD within one speed grade of competitor Intel’s fastest Pentium II. He described the Compaq machines as integrated boxes for Internet usage for first-time Internet home-users. ®
