Mobos for 750MHz .18 micron Athlons easy peasy

It's a minor change only

Concern about whether current motherboards for the Athlon K7 will support speeds of 750MHz and above have been dissipated by sources close to Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). When AMD releases its 750MHz Athlon on the 29th of this month, which will be a .18 micron part, only a minor change to motherboards and otherboards will be required. The source agreed that changes to the current motherboards are needed, but that vendors have already taken steps to make these changes. She said: "The .18 micron version of Athlon requires a VRM change on mainboard (as does Coppermine). Board vendors have already revised their designs for this." That means that the spate of third party motherboards now available for the Athlon K7 will work. ®
