AMD finally introduced its K6-2 processor today but could produce only two major PC manufacturers to support it.
Those are IBM and Fujitsu, a senior AMD representative said today, claiming there would be more to come.
David Somo, director of product marketing for the chip group at AMD, said: "IBM and Fujitsu will introduce systems and we have many regional partners. All leading PC manufacturers are evaluating the K6-2."
Somo said that AMD will deliver the K6-3 processor in the autumn, and then its next generation K7 architecture, as promised, in the first half of next year.
The company claimed that it would be able to deliver sufficient quantities of the K6-2 to satisfy its customers and its channels. There have been complaints during the first half of this year about lack of supplies of the original K6.
"We've successfully ramped our .25 micron technology and we'll build 12 million units by the end of the year," Somo said.
He confirmed that the introduction next year of the K7 solution, which supports Intel's Slot architecture, will be aimed at the networking market as well as the retail PC sector and will come in dual processor and eventually quad processor versions.
