The essential guide to IT transformation

The lack of ability of Intel to supply .18 micron Pentium IIIs to its channel dealers and distributors in volume until next year has given AMD a rare window of opportunity to sell its products. AMD officially released its 25th October prices yesterday but the prices of its mobile processors are unchanged. That demonstrates its products are holding solid compared to the extremely volatile desktop processor market. Although AMD, so far, makes few performance claims for its mobile microprocessors, the family, ranging from a K6-III/450 at $320/1000 right down to a K6-2/350 at $74, is making considerable inroads into the marketplace. Intel's own projections estimate that notebooks will eventually displace desktops. Next year, AMD will introduce mobile Athlon processors, as revealed here in June. ®
