AMD K6 Not Viable for Servers, Anyone's
An SI Board Since March 1997
Posts SubjectMarks Bans Symbol
12 0 0 AMD
Emcee:  Kashish King Type:  Unmoderated
For some reason the AMD thread posted something related to SI needing to upgrade which probably generated serveral requests.

1. K6 does not support multi-processor servers, that is important.
2. K6 resides on the legacy PCI bus which is a major bottleneck.
3. K6 does not have a mobile package for laptops, years away.
4. K6' quality, yield, performance are unknown as it has not released.
