The mobile chip race is turning into a two-horse race with AMD completing its re-invention from also-ran to strong contender. With its latest mobile CPUs, AMD is running ahead in the MHz race, outclocking Intel’s fastest equivalents. AMD is stepping out six new mobile CPUs, three apiece for the Mobile K6-III-P and K6-2-P lines. For the K6-111-P line, clock speeds come in at a useful 400MHz, 433MHz and 450MHz, compared with 400MHz for Intel’s fastest mobile Pentium -- the 400MHz Pentium II. It’s a tighter squeeze on the K6-2-P front, but AMD still shades the MHz race with its 433MHz, 450MHz and 475MHz contenders. Its top model edges ahead of Intel’s fastest mobile, the 466MHz Celery (which launched only last week). In OEM quantities of 1,000, the new K6 –111-Ps line up at $246, $283 and $320. The K6-2-Ps cost $159, $189 and $209. All the new AMD mobiles incorporate a 100MHz-frontside bus and 3DNow!. ®
