Intel will pay $3K for AMD's K7

But we will only pay $2,000 for one, if one is out there...

Inside Intel, there is a deal (or a competition) where if someone gets hold of an AMD K7 and its details, the successful winner will get $3,000. But at The Register, here in London, we will pay $2,000 for the same part. We will then attempt to sell it to Intel for $2,500, thus making $500 on the part. We know samples are out there and we are serious. Give us a K7 sample, Dell and Gateway, or whoever, and we will pay you $2,000. On the nail. And as we're talking Coppermine et al, would you care to look at benchmarks for the Intel thang and Jerry Sanders the Third's K7? They are on a Stanford University site. But all the students are on holiday. We'll publish them tomorrow... ®
