AMD has at last released a version of its K-2 CPU aimed at the notebook market, as predicted here (see AMD to launch K6-2 for mobile market too). And Toshiba has announced it will use the part in its Satellite 2520 notebook. However, the machine will initially be only be made available to Japanese buyers. Originally, sources close to AMD had predicted Compaq would be the first major notebook supplier to release a Mobile K6-2 based machine. Clocking in at 266, 300 and 333MHz, the Mobile K6-2 supports Socket 7 and Super 7 interfaces -- the latter adds support for a 100MHz frontside bus and AGP graphics. The chips operate at 1.8V and consume less than 8W of power, AMD claimed. They are based on 0.25-micron technology. Prices (in units of 1000) begin at $106 for the 266MHz version, $187 for the 300MHz processor and $299 for the 333MHz part. ®
