K7 mobile to arrive next year

So how about that then, Intel

Computex Sources very close to AMD, in fact in their suite in room 2407 in the Grand Hyatt, said today that the K7 will be produced for notebooks next year. The microprocessor will be produced when the K7 moves to .18 micron technology, said the source. Currently, AMD is positioning the chip as a solution for the workstation and server market. The fact AMD is moving the K7 to a mobile platform reveals how serious it is at taking on Intel at its own game. If AMD was demonstrating the K7 in their suite, it was behind closed doors. The same source confirmed that OEMs would be producing K6-III/500s in the very near future. ®
