      IBM leans on AMD's K7 for new PCs

      NEW YORK--IBM will showcase the power of the new
      K7/Athlon chip from Advanced Micro Devices when it brings
      out a fancy, high-end consumer PC packing the chip
      this summer.

      Big Blue's move could present a
      challenge to Intel's high-end PC dominance and the key to
      AMD's survival.

      IBM will bring out the high-end
      Aptiva S series computer with AMD's coming K7 processor
      and a novel industrial design, according to industry
      sources familiar with the announcement. The K7/Athlon,
      meanwhile, may officially be announced later this afternoon
      in a conference call.

      Behind closed doors,
      IBM is demonstrating the computer at PC Expo here,
      according to sources. IBM would not comment.

      The S
      series is IBM's flashiest, most-feature-packed consumer
      PC line and is usually reserved for the swiftest
      chips from Intel, such as the fastest Pentium III

      Entry into the S series would be a big
      boost for AMD, which has seen most of its chips
      confined to machines costing less than $1,200. The K7,
      which sources say will likely be marketed as the
      "Athlon" processor, represents a potential break with the
      past for AMD.

      The chip's innovative design has
      received rave reviews from analysts, who say it should
      equal or surpass Pentium III in performance. A 600-MHz
      Athlon, one source said, will equal a 700-MHz Pentium
      III. Test drivers of beta models say the chip
      "smokes." Along with IBM, Compaq Computer is expected to
      release Athlon systems later this summer.

      recently announced delay in Intel's 600-MHz "Coppermine"
      chip, a souped-up Pentium III, has given AMD a historic
      chance to wear the performance processor crown for PCs
      for potentially the rest of the year. Athlon-based
      PCs are expected to start hitting store shelves when
      the chip goes into volume production toward August,
      said sources, and run at 500 MHz, 550 MHz, and 600
      MHz, with faster speeds following.,4,38267,00.html?

    • May be AMD will have a new chapter. They are not suffering from production delays or yields. INTC will not be able to squeeze them on the top.
      I will be buying on any weakness.

    • It's negative $ 1.33. Do the simple math for yourself.
