Sources close to AMD in Japan told The Register today that the K6-3 is to be called the K6-III, using Roman numerals. But that is likely to spur Intel to fury, given that it insisted AMD did not call the K6-2 the K6-II, a suggestion to which AMD agreed. At the same time, dealer selling prices of AMD parts showed that the smaller chip player was ready and willing to take on Intel at its pricing game. From this morning, the K6-2/300 will cost $65, the K6-2/333 $75, the K6-2/350 $90, the K6-2/366 $96, the K6-2/380 $123, the K6-2/400 $138 and the K6-2/450, now officially launched, $210. An AMD UK representative said the name had not changed, just the way the number was written. But it is now obvious that the battle between both AMD and Intel is on with a vengeance, with the K6-III aimed squarely at the Pentium III. ® Related Stories Analysis: AMD caught by Intel's devilish price fork K6-3 to have new name as software war begins Intel slashes Celeron prices -- again
