ADVANCED MICRO DEVICES FINALLY READY WITH THE K5 MICROPROCESSOR

By CBR Staff Writer

Advanced Micro Devices Inc is this week expected to announce immediate shipments of its very late K5 microprocessor at bargain-basement prices, says US PC Week. Renamed the 5K86, the part will come in 90MHz and 75MHz versions, the former at $99 for 1,000-up where Intel Corp charges $198, and the latter $75 compared with Intel’s $104. The Sunnyvale company expects to ship 5m during the first 12 months. The 5K86 chips are designed to be compatible with Intel core logic chip sets and motherboards. A 100MHz version is planned for the third quarter, an enhanced 120MHz in the fourth.
