First benchmark results on K6!!!

Even though these are unofficial, a motherboard site on the net has some results and it looks like recent magazine claims have been verified. The K6 performs at or better than a pentium pro at the same clock speed. Things should even look better when K6 motherboards that support 100 mhz bus speeds start coming out. Notice the overclocked motherboard results for the k6 on this page.

See for the table of results. Based on this it looks like the k6 is a good bet. Equal or better performance for 25% less cost is a win in my book. My next upgrade will definately be a K6.
