AMD Up to Speed With 800-MHz Processor

AMD Inc. today matched Intel's top-speed Pentium processor with the introduction of its own 800-MHz AMD Athlon processor. The 800-MHz Athlon is AMD's (www.amd.com) fastest processor yet.

The AMD Athlon is an x86-compatible, seventh-generation design featuring 128 KB of on-chip level (L1) cache and a backside L2 cache interface; 3DNow! technology; and the AMD Athlon system bus.

OEMs including Compaq Computer Corp. and IBM Corp. have announced plans to develop systems based on the new processor.

AMD, KryoTech (www.kryotech.com), and Compaq also joined today to demonstrate a Compaq Presario Internet PC running an AMD Athlon processor at 1 GHz. The demonstration is based on KryoTech's SuperG technology, which accelerates the processor by cooling it. -- Isaac Slepner
