Correction (Apologies for the first rev of this story which had the zeroes and percentages in interesting places. MM) Chipzilla keeps a wary eye on the competition – or "imitators" as it so charmingly refers to them – and posts predictions of the kind of shipping volumes expected. One anonymous OEM very kindly shared Old Mother Intel’s thoughts on what AMD’s K7 would achieve with The Register. Intel reckons the K7 will hit 100,000 units in the third quarter and a whopping 500,000 in Q4. Meantime, the K6III will peak at 3,100,000 units in Q3 and drop to 2,750,000 in Q4. Overall, Intel’s crystal balls reckon AMD will ship 3,400,000 parts in Q3 and 3,250,000 in Q4. Chipzilla predicts it will manage 26,200,000 units in Q3 and 28,100,000 in Q4, an estimated 85 per cent and 86 per cent of the total market respectively. ®
