AMD K7 veils lifted

JC collates what we know and what we don't

Our friends over at JC's have put together a cold collation of what is known about AMD's up-and-coming K7. The information on the site includes motherboard and other information about chipsets. It's a useful aide memoire to what we're about to see and our information is that high premiums are already being paid for available boards by Taiwanese hardware manufacturers. AMD has been quite cunning about its plans, causing the maximum anticipation while giving out the meagrest of details. You can have no doubt whatever that Intel will do its level best to scupper AMD's launch plans. Coppermine only being the half of it. ®
