K6-2 set to break 20 mill mark in 1999

Sales figures say it all

AMD has claimed that it is well on the way to selling K6-2s into double figures next year. The rival to Intel’s throne claims that it sold 11 million members of the K6 chip family in 1998 and says an additional 10 million K6-2 chips will be sold by the middle of the first quarter of 1999. Actual sales figures for the K6 stand at around 3.5 million, confirming the K6-2’s position at the top of the K6 family tree. Although AMD has formally withdrawn the K6, sources confirmed that plenty were still swilling around and for that matter being sold. ®
