Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Various hardware sites are reporting that AMD will demonstrate a K7 chip running at 600MHz at the CeBIT trade fair in Hannover in two weeks time. According to AMD Zone, engineers at AMD have also succeeded in manufacturing K7 samples which clock at 650MHz. The reports suggest that AMD will show the K7 clocking 600MHz but do not need Kryotech technology to achieve these speeds. When Intel demonstrated a chip overclocked to 1GHz at the Intel Developer Forum two weeks ago, we are reliably assured it needed super-cooling to reach such speeds. And in other AMD news, Japanese hardware sites are now reporting that K6-IIIs are becoming available in quantity in the retail market. One has overclocked the K6-III/450 to 500MHz. ® Intel Developer Forum coverage Naked K7 found in downtown Las Vegas
