Internet Security Threat Report 2014

In a bid to further increase market share at the expense of its bigger brother, Intel, AMD yesterday announced availability of notebook chips with K6-2 and K6-III handles. In a press release, the firm said that the chips, which are processors made with a .18 micron process, includes its PowerNow (formerly Gemini) battery conservation system, as well as level two cache incorporated into the fabric. The AMD equivalent of Intel's Screaming Cindy multimedia extensions, called 3DNow, how uses digital signal processing technology. The K6-III+ comes in clock speeds of 450, 475 and 500MHz and uses optional L3 cache of up to 1MB, AMD said, as well as using a 100MHz system bus. The chips are made at AMD's Austin (Fab 25) fabrication plant. It seems that AMD has executed pretty well on these mobile parts. When we interviewed the firm in February, it would only commit to product "before June". ®
