Unnamed 550MHz chip benchmarks revisited by Anand

The K7 rumour mill rolls on

Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

After we got thoroughly beaten around the head by all kinds of AMD enthusiasts about putative K7 benchmarks we published a while back, we’ve been a bit chary about mentioning the subject again. So we'll wait until Drew Prairie and our friends at AMD release official benchmarks before we have a pop at that subject again. But meantime, our friends on the hardware sites continue unabashed. Over at Anandtech, there is a comparison which mentions "an unnamed 550Mz processor" which could be the K7. (What else could it be?). Anand, incidentally, claims that the Pentium III/550MHz does not run hot, as reported by The Sherriff and denied by The Satan, a couple of weeks back. And JC is holding a sort of quiz asking people to guess what the figures are likely to be. Our friends at AMDZone have decided to wait and see. This is probably wise... We are relying on Drew Prairie at AMD to let us know the minute they’re available, which I’m sure he or his Euro friends will do, given that we decided not to sue them… Take a look for yourself… ®
