AMD INTRODUCES NEW CHIPS.

Advance Micro Devices (AMD) introduced this week the latest versions of its Athlon microprocessor as well as new chips from its Duron series. AMD expects these new products to receive an enthusiastic reception and enhance its position as No. 2 against Intel Corp.'s No. 1 position.

The new chips will run at speeds from 750 megahertz to one gigahertz and will integrate a special cache so that the memory subsystem can run at the full speed of the processor. Its earlier introduced Athlon chip kept its cache separate from the processor, and did not compete effectively with Intel's gigahertz Pentium chip which combined the cache with the processor.

AMD indicated that Compaq Computer Corp. and Gateway, Inc., will be major users of the new chip which will be shipped during the third quarter of 2000. It expects the new chips to be the successor to the K6 and K6-2 chip families which had not been particularly successful in competition with Intel's Celeron chips.
