Unnamed 550MHz chip is a K7

Anand reckons he'll review it soon

Last weekend we reported that an "unnamed processor" benchmarked against Pentium IIIs on the AnandTech web site was likely to be a K7. The link to the benchmark is in our original story. Now Anand himself has stepped into the fray and has claimed that the benchmarks do, indeed, relate to an engineering sample of the K7. He said that the benchmarks he posted would probably improve by around five per cent when he has the final version of the chip in his hands. In other news, it appears that AMD will introduce the K6-III/500 in the middle of June. ®
