AMD PREVIEWED its next-generation K7 chip at the Microprocessor Forum in San Jose, California, last week. The K7, with no secondary cache included, will run at 500MHz when it is released midway through next year and is expected to reach 1GHz by 2000. The chip uses a new 200MHz system bus that can be pushed up to 400MHz, according to the company. The bus, however, is not pin-compatible with existing Pentium architecture, which means that motherboard manufacturers will have to re-engineer boards to use the new chip. At the same forum, Intel outlined details of its 64-bit Merced chips, running at 1GHz, and due to be released in the middle of 2000. As well as a new instruction set, the chip will use a new cache memory architecture that consists of three levels, instead of the two used in Pentium II chips.
