Talking For all the AMD fans...





Anyone remember these socket 7 evil things? Some of you sure do.
Of course I believe Cyrix won the award for most evil CPU at the time.

I was the *unlucky* one to have owned both of these because I got sucked into the price difference between AMD and Intel. I can't tell you how many problems I had with these CPU/mobo combos.

Anyone remember the Win95 bootup problem with a K6-2 300 or higher?
had to download a patch just to get windows to run.

Thank god for AMD being able to suck it up and get passed that nightmare.

kudos to you AMD!

Well, just wanted to let people know that those created a lot of Intel fans (me included). I've been running Intel for the passed 6 years, but now I think I'm willing to give AMD a try since they seem to be doing great things for the gamers

The first Intel I've owned was the Pentium w/ MMX Technology while the first AMD processor was the AMD K6-II.

Again, AMD K6 use Super Socket 7...that socket can support FSBs up to 100MHZ

Usually, AMD K6 is designed to run at est with Windows 98...but I didn't had trouble with Windows XP...cuz I have a 500MHZ CPU
