Sources close to AMD said today that the K6-3 is to be called the K6-III, using Roman numerals.
But that is likely to infuriate Intel given that it insisted AMD did not call the K6-2 the K6-II, a suggestion to which AMD agreed at the time.
At the same time, dealer selling prices of AMD parts showed that the smaller chip player was ready and willing to take on Intel at its pricing game.
From this morning, the K6-2/300 will cost $65, the K6-2/333 $75, the K6-2/350 $90, the K6-2/366 $96, the K6-2/380 $123, the K6-2/400 $138 and the K6-2/450, now officially launched, is $210.
AMD's use of the III is deliberately aimed at Intel, which renamed its Katmai processor the Pentium III.
