Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Our feverish request to come up with the definitive new name for the K7 chip seems to have found a response. An OEM, who under no circumstances whatever wishes to be named, tells us that Athlon will be the name of the K7 processor at its launch next week. AMD wouldn't even give us the date of the launch so that we could write a piece ready for the announcement. It wanted us to sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement). But we wanted to know the date so we could tell AMD whether or not we could be around.... And in another piece of weird recursion, Taiwanese company Gigabyte is quoting The Register as saying that the launch date will be the 28 of June. Surely Gigabyte knows? We will post the gladiatoral contest when we get round to it.. ®
