AMD K6 versus Cyrix M2
An SI Board Since February 1997

Hi everybody.

From the title of this subject, you can see that I am not an Intel fan. Pretty soon, AMD and Cyrix are going to release their MMX chips.
Their architecture are very similar. Both have a 64K L1 cache, they are superpipelined and superscalar, etc., etc., etc.

Most x86 CPU websites compare only Cyrix versus Intel or AMD versus Intel, but NEVER Cyrix versus AMD.

Can anybody point out the differences between the AMD K6 and the Cyrix M2?
