Major vendor Compaq is set to adopt the AMD K6 chip, sources close to the company said today.
That follows an intensive look at the potential of the chip in terms of price and performance.
The announcement could come as quickly as the end of the month, with Compaq adopting a K6 solution in its desktop models. It adopted another Intel clone, this time from Cyrix, in its Presario range earlier this year.
AMD refused to either confirm or deny that the announcement was set to happen. A representative said: ?It is true that we have been talking to Compaq for the last nine months, but I?d be very surprised if it happened in that timeframe.?
Compaq refused to comment.
At the end of this month, IBM will introduce an Aptiva consumer PC using the K6, which is likely to be sold through a chain of superstores in the UK and elsewhere in the world.
