AMD K7 trounces PIII Xeon, says c't

And takeover rumour mill grinds on

German magazine c't is reporting that unofficial benchmarks they have for the AMD K7 platform show that it trounces a Pentium III Xeon chip. If your German's any good, go here. The magazine, however, asks the same question we posed some time back about the role of Coppermine in the future. (See story: Coppermine could finish AMD off for good) Meanwhile the AMD rumour mill is once more turning, with postings on Yahoo suggesting that ST Microelectronics (formerly SGS Thomsen), could be in talks to acquire the ailing company. ®
