In another blow to Intel's battered pride, AMD announced late yesterday that Compaq will use its mobile K6-2s in Prosignia notebooks. According to AMD, Compaq will use its 380MHz and 350MHz mobile K6-2Ps in a range of its machines. Intel has recently vowed to mop up the low end market for notebooks, with senior executives saying at its Developer Forum last February that it was determined to grab that market space. It is the first time that Compaq has offered AMD mobile processors in the Prosignia line, said our old friend and sparring partner Dana Krelle. AMD claims that in February it had captured 33 per cent of the low-end notebook market with its MPUs. ®
