New hybrid storage solutions

In a bid to lay down the ground rules for the fight between the K6-III and the Pentium III, AMD has briefed games and hardware Web sites about the future of 3DNow! And, according to a transcript of the discussion, which is posted at JC's site, AMD executives have claimed that 30 million processors using the 3DNow! instructions will ship by the end of the year. Keith Galocy, a senior AMD executive, said that AMD itself will deliver 5.5 million 3DNow! chips this quarter alone, while its sales will represent around 20 million by year end. According to AMD, 3DNow! is a general purpose floating point enhancer, and is better than Intel's Streaming SIMD because it only uses 21 additional instructions. ®
