US reports have published leaked pricing details for AMD K6 chips but UK officials claimed they could not comment on pricing here.
According to the reports, AMD will release three flavours of its Pentium II killer on 2 April. They will run at 166MHz, 200MHz and 233MHz clock speeds and prices will be $210, $315 and $450, if customers buy them in quantities of 1,000.
This low pricing is likely to boost AMD's appeal to hardware vendors including Compaq and Mitsubishi, and strengthen its hand against Intel - even IBM is looking at the processor for its machines, according to internal sources.
But sources add that Intel has a master plan that, in combination with its legal action against both Cyrix and AMD, will put it in pole position again. In May, it will release a 300MHz Klamath Pentium II, thus undermining the competition by using clock speeds to appeal to consumers and end users.
An AMD representative said: ?We do not comment on customers? machines. Ask them if they?re doing it. On pricing that?s nothing I?ve actually seen."
