Name that K7

Athlon? Sounds like Athlete's Foot...

We've been sunning ourselves in the Italian lakes for the last few days so managed to miss Dirk Meyer's presentation on the K7 last week. Sorry about that. He told an assembled group of diners that the K7 has a SpecFP a groovy 40 per cent higher than Intel's Xeon with a full speed cache. The K7 only has a half speed cache. As we ate our schinken, we were not thinken about the name AMD will give the K7. Some hardware sites say it will be called Athlon. Curious name, if true. We'll try to find out. ® RegiStroid K7 While Athlete's Foot appears to be the name of a chain of sports shops in the US, it has a different meaning here. It's a fungal infection you get between your toes...
