MicroDesign Resources, the people who publish The Microprocessor Report, seem to have been sold by Spliff Davis to the Cahners Electronic Group. We know this because we received an invite to a seminar on June 10 where Dirk Meyer, chief architect of AMD's K7, will demonstrate the beast. According to MDR, Meyer will present new features that will allow the K7 to meet the needs of different market segments. He will also explain the architectural tradeoffs his team made and the features that are responsible for the chip’s high performance. ®
