Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

A report on Taiwanese newswire Digitimes Friday last claimed that third party chipset report for the K7 is unlikely to be available until year end. According to the report, which we have been unable to confirm with AMD, the first batch of K7s will arrive next month worldwide, but product will not be widely available until Q4. Motherboard manufacturers in Taiwan are creating K7 mobos with 200MHz FSB, which will arrive in Q3 and use six layer design, with Irongate chipset report. ViA and SiS, however, are unlikely to be able to support the K7 until the end of the year, according to DigiTimes. Prices for the K7 will be around $400, according to the unconfirmed report. Staffers from The Register will once more attend the Computex trade fair in Taipei, in early June, and we're likely to get some hard facts then. ® See also Cunning AMD-Compaq plan takes shape Compaq-AMD plans take Linux shape Alpha chip to clock 1.4GHz in copper Computex coverage 1998
