Austin, TX--October 7, 1996--AMD (Sunnyvale, CA) announced two new members of its AMD-K5 processor family, the AMD-K5-PR133 and AMD-K5-PR120 processors.
The new AMD-K5-PR133 and the AMD-K5-PR120 processors deliver system performance equal to or better than 133- and 120-MHz Pentiums, respectively, based on P-Rating tests using the Ziff-Davis Winstone 96 benchmark. The P-Rating provides the PC industry with a single measurement of system performance provided by the processor.
The AMD-K5-PR133 and PR120 processors' Socket 7 hardware compatibility enables PC manufacturers to take advantage of fifth-generation system designs and infrastructure. This Socket 7 compatibility minimizes system redesign and development cost, and speeds time to market.
The AMD-K5 processor is licensed by the Microsoft Windows Hardware Quality Labs to carry the Windows 95 logo, and has received compatibility certification from XXCAL Inc., an independent testing laboratory. The AMD-K5 processor is not only compatible with the Windows operating system but also with the installed base of x86 software, including Novell Netware and OS/2 Warp operating systems, and more than 60,000 other software packages.
The AMD-K5-PR133 and AMD-K5-PR120 processors are priced at $134 and $106, respectively, each in 1,000-piece quantities. Both are offered in a 296-pin staggered pin grid array (SPGA) package. Samples are available now and AMD is accepting orders.
