AMD to intro three K7s and it will be June
Chipset information confirmed
A reliable source close to AMD's plans who attended the E3 show last week has confirmed that information we posted about the K7 chipsets is correct. At the same time he said that AMD was bang on the button for a June release and would come out with 500MHz, 550MHz and 600MHz versions at launch date. System vendors, however, will be the first to get their hands on the parts, as AMD continues to ramp up its production during the rest of the year. As reported here, AMD will use the Irongate chipset for the first few months, while the Taiwanese vendors develop solutions for motherboards. ViA and ALI are likely to be first off the mark, with chipsets available in the fourth quarter of 1999. ®
