The essential guide to IT transformation

The Digital Anvil, AMD and Microsoft connection is to deliver further desktops using the K7 platform in Q3 1999, we can reveal. The source that told The Register last week of the copper interconnect K7 in Y2K with a 400MHz bus, today revealed it has several other customers interested in its products. He said: "I don’t think [the Compaq Presario with K7] will be an exclusive. We have other customer wins too." AMD is pitching its PC OEMs with a joint Digital Anvil convergent technology, but he refused to be drawn on whether Microsoft was involved in the equation. He said Digital Anvil will not exclusively work with AMD. "The market is too small for that and companies like DA depend on volume, he added." That means that small company Digital Anvil is being wooed by two of the biggest x.86 based companies in the world. We understand other platforms are interested in its technology as well. ®
