This is the sonorous name of Athlon

Well, AMD is completely out of control. Rolls new processors out of the cornucopia. Most recently, on February 23, AMD announced two new processors: AMD-K6®-III-400 and AMD-K6®-III-450. By the way, February 23rd is the birthday of EPOS, and to all its merits, it’s also the AMD Technical Support Center. Apparently, AMD focused on this particular date.

Then there was a lot of noise: including the official presentation in Kiev, after which we finally got the long-awaited processor. True, the test results showed that, as always, the noise about the merits of the new processor from AMD was somewhat exaggerated. Of course, in general, the K6-III turned out to be quite good. And taking into account its price – in general a cool processor! Three-level cache, and the second level cache, 256KB in size, runs at the core frequency, which is great! Working with office applications has become much more pleasant. 3DNOW instruction set! significantly improves performance on gaming applications. However, K6-III did not learn how to work humanly with a floating point.

But before we could enjoy the new processor, K7 appeared!

He appeared somehow suspiciously quiet, without the usual noise. We already held it in our hands. Almost all the known motherboard manufacturers announced motherboards designed for K7. But there isn’t much noise. It’s immediately noticeable that this time the processor turned out great! Probably, it was not in vain that he received not a serial number (the name K7 is not used now), but his own beautiful name: Athlon.
