Internet Security Threat Report 2014

AMD is expected to announce the 475 MHz version of its K6-II processor today, upping the stakes on the battle of the benchmarks. The rumours have been around for a fair while. See, for example, K7 ripped asunder on Japanese site. Last week, AMD claimed that ZD benchmarks were inaccurate and its chips are faster than Intel's Pentium III. This, of course, is a matter for quite some debate... However, the 475MHz K6-II is preparing the way for the K7-500MHz part, already sampling with some system vendors. We're not sure if AMD will bother with those kinds of speeds on the K6-III. And Intel will strike back by lowering prices drastically real soon now. Both Intel's and AMD's results are out shortly. ® NB Thanks to readers who pointed out I got my knickers in a twist over the K6-2 versus the K6-III...sigh.
