The essential guide to IT transformation

A list of third party support for Athlon has arrived, including information about motherboard manufacturers. The information, listed at AMDZONE, shows that Gigabyte, Microstar, Asus, FIC and BioStar will produce motherboards for the K7. An AMD representative said this morning that full details are now on the Athlon (K7) FAQ at AMD's site. As revealed here earlier, K7 Athlons will become available in the first week of August, so many of these products are likely to arrive then, or soon afterwards. Gigabyte and Microstar are close to releasing their products, the report suggests. There is also a list of recommended manufacturers of power supplies for the K7. Last week, several hardware sites reported that it needs a hefty unit to power it, although that could change when .18 micron K7s become available. Meanwhile, Kryotech has demonstrated a K7 running at 1000MHz, using its cooling technology. AMD will have its own 1GHz K7 next year it claims. Meanwhile, JC is reporting on his site that AMD Japan has put pressure on stores in Tokyo's electronics district to withdraw K7s for sale later this week. And sources close to AMD told The Register that the K6-III/500 will be announced in the next "week or two". Look out for AMD's financial results during this week. ® Complete Computex 99 coverage
