AMD pulls show chip
Tom Foremski Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) will not announce availability of its new K6 3D processor at this week’s CeBIT show in Germany, as originally planned. An AMD spokesman declined to say if the delay was due to production problems. “We will issue a progress report on our yields and moving K6 production to our 0.25-micron process on April 7,” said the spokesman. The K6 3D offers improved multimedia performance for 3D graphics through the use of an extended MMX instruction set. AMD has been talking with Cyrix and IDT about adopting a common set of MMX instructions in order to gain wider industry support.
