D This question should have gone in the Hardware forum, but Intel Pentium III On a chip that was already maxxed out for that technology level? It ran with a Isa videocard, started with 3 disks, then later, the O. Internally, it was a RISC design.

The K was a very financially successful chip and enabled AMD to earn the revenue it would need to introduce the forthcoming Athlon.

Have something to contribute to this discussion? This article includes a list of referencesbut its sources remain unclear because it has insufficient inline citations.

The big difference in design and performance came from the introduction of kB of cache running at the full CPU speed directly in the CPU core. They are kind of part of ‘computer history’ now. The introductory K was by far the best-selling variant. Computer-related introductions in Advanced ,6 Devices x86 microprocessors Advanced Micro Devices microarchitectures Superscalar microprocessors. One item of note: April Commercial name: Welcome to the HWC mazmaz How old is your laptop?


I enjoy working with older systems from time to time, you really have to expand your mental toolbox to work around and utilize all of the quirks of different hardware.

AMD-K6(tm) 3D processor?!?!

This article needs additional citations for verification. NexGen Nx with heat spreader on pfocessor. This intention and initial designs started around and the CPU was planned to be released in Hi whatisbobo, welcome to DaniWeb: Socket 7 Super Socket 7. The K was really the core of the K6 Family with numerous models and declinations and gave AMD the financial means to develop the future K7.

The K was designed as a competitor to Processod flagship processor, the significantly more expensive Pentium II.

K6-III — the last of the many. Genesis After the successful,and CPU models AMD produced under license from Intel or by reverse engineering, time came to design their own class chip from the ground up. I’ll try my best to find out more about it. Well, prodessor luck then.

I have a old Pentium 2 computer I going to have fun with till co-worker said he had an old computer that was taking up space in his shop it was a AMD K6.

Amc the name implying a design evolving from the K5 prpcessor, it is in fact a totally different design that was created by the NexGen team, including chief processor architect Greg Favor, [1] [2] and adapted after the AMD purchase.

History | AMD K6, K and K6-III CPU resource

My guess would be closer to 5 or 6 years It was manufactured using a 0. The K5 was definitely disappointing. It was also made pin-compatible with Intel’s Pentium, enabling it to be used in the widely available ” Socket 7 “-based motherboards.
