AMD K7 advertised in US Computer Shopper

Oops-a-daisy...

Our friends over in the US, in particularl at JC, have noticed that Sys is advertising a $4,000 K7 system running at 800MHz and apparently using some kind of cooling technique. That has led other friends, in particular Jonathan Hou at Fullon3D, to speculate about the price of the K7 by breaking down the spex of this machine. Doing so, the price breaks down to around $750 for a 600MHz part, according to Jonathan. The advert is on page 165 of Computer Shopper US. As the cognoscenti are aware, the UK Computer Shopper is a different beast and is owned by one Felix Dennis. We only see US Computer Shopper when we're in the States but expect to see a K7 system pop up real soon now on a Akihabara site... ®
