SANS - Survey on application security programs

A conference call between analysts and chip firm Advanced Micro Devices has confirmed that a 750MHz Athlon is close to the starting gate. AMD told the analysts that it had managed to produce a 750MHz Athlon ahead of all expectations, but also said that the average selling price of its flash memory had suffered degradation. Top tier OEMs will ship the Athlon 750MHz part, as revealed here earlier, while some analysts are speculating that AMD may break even this quarter. Rob Herb, an AMD executive, used The Register's own words to describe opposition from Intel with its Coppermine parts. We said Coppermine was "A processor you can't find, for a platform that doesn't work, with memory you can't afford". Herb repeated those words. AMD has also successfully moved to .18 micron technology and will be able to deliver 800MHz, 900MHz and 1000MHz versions of its Athlon very soon. Our sources tell us that AMD could do most of this tomorrow, but it does want to maximise its profits. We will report full details of the analyst meeting tomorrow. ® See also AMD pumps up Athlon speed to 1GHz for Comdex
