Chip company Advanced Micro Devices has now released its official statement on the introduction of the Athlon K7. As revealed earlier, it comes in 650MHz as well as 600MHz, 550MHz and 500MHz flavours, and has support from both Compaq and Big Blue. (Earlier story: AMD Athlon K7 NDAs expire... See this story for links, background &c.) Jerry Sanders III, CEO of AMD, is going to release some sound bites later on today. AMD has also opened its main Athlon page for business. Here you will find benchmarks and the like, which demonstrate the processor's technological virtues. There are also some application and technical notes on this page. But it seems a potentially disastrous price war between AMD and Intel has already started. AMD has already cut some of its prices to match Intel's latest move. ® Our last week's news coverage AMD manages to undercut Intel on K7 pricing Intel may snap up AMD AMD K7 strategy is a tightrope walk AMD uses Intel Inside top Fab Sandpit AMD+Dresden Sandpit II AMD to intro non-legacy push AMD's Sanders puts two fingers up to Intel AMD positions K7 Athlon for enterprise Via-AMD finalise chipset deal AMD+Dresden Sandpit I AMD succeeds in producing copper K6 Web Hardware Sites Anandtech Ace's Fullon3D AMD Zone Tom's Hardware CPU Review Sharky Extreme
