  • Excerpt: Last summer I decided that I wanted to upgrade my Pentium 1 233, as it was very slow, what was I to but on my limited budget of 300. After looking around I decided on the AMD K6 3 450 MHz.

  • Excerpt: If you already have a socket 7 M.B. then a K6-3 450 can really kick the butt off any other compatible chip. All my bench marks showed an increase off about 50% or better including Hard Drive benches. Compared this to a K6-2 450 on my daughters system.

  • Excerpt: Its not a major suprise that AMD pulled the plug on this chip because the Athlon had not long been released and there was probably not as much difference as they may have liked between performance of the original Athlon and the K6-III apart from the clock speed.

  • Excerpt: There is one simple reason why AMD stopped making the K6-III processor chip. that reason is that the chip was just too good. Yes seriously the K6-III was too good for AMD to sell. Strange you think that AMD would not sell such a good chip.

  • Excerpt: The K6-III with it's larger (than the K6-2) secondary cache brought a level of performance comparable with an Intel celeron processor but at half the price. It allowed owners of older socket seven motherboards to virtually keep up with the more expensive pentiums.

  • Excerpt: .... in my opinion! My super socket 7 motherboard is happy with intel processors. It can chew them up and spit them out with no bother, they rpesent it no meat to get working with. the K6-III however gives it quite possibly more meant than it can handle.

  • Excerpt: Well I don't either (I have a K6) but have used computers of very similar specs running both a 450 MHz celeron and a 400 K6 III. To be honest I did not notice much difference in speed under a windows 95 environment but I can say that the AMD did handle games a bit better.

  • Excerpt: Back before the AMD Athlon and before the Celeron was available the AMD K6-II and K6-III processors were pretty much the only choice for high-powered systems that didn't cost a bundle.
