ADVANCED MICRO DEVICES UNVEILS 32-BIT RISC MICROPROCESSOR

By CBR Staff Writer

Advanced Micro Devices was yesterday scheduled to come in ahead of a string of big-name companies led by AT&T Co and Motorola Inc that are planning 32-bit Reduced Instruction Set microprocessors with the unveiling of the Am29000 chip. No doubt derived from the company’s Am29300 32-bit slice, the new microprocessor is rated at a steady 17m (reduced) instructions per second, with peak performance of 25 MIPS. It will be accompanied by a 29027 arithmetic co-processor, and is due for sampling this summer or autumn, with volume set for early 1988. Prices are expected to start at around $500, falling, if the part lands enough design wins, to $100 in three years’ time.
