Tremendous Processing Power for the Home
The AMD-K6®-III processor takes Windows® 98 performance to greater levels.
It provides the power you need to take control of your finances, run today's
hottest education software, or navigate your way through the ever-expanding
Outstanding Performance for Business Users
Get the computational muscle you need for today's Internet and business
productivity applications. AMD's innovative TriLevel Cache™ design boosts
overall PC performance on Windows NT® applications.
Realistic 3D Computing Experience
Release the potential of today's gaming, productivity, and Internet software
for a more realistic 3D multimedia experience. The AMD-K6-III processor
combines 3DNow!™ technology and AMD's innovative TriLevel Cache design
to bring your PC to life with detailed 3D images, colorful graphics, crisp
sound and smooth digital video playback.
Innovative TriLevel Cache™ Design
AMD's TriLevel Cache design enables the largest total system cache on
currently available desktop PCs, resulting in excellent performance on
Windows applications. Even computation-intensive and memory-intensive
applications run quickly and efficiently on systems using the AMD-K6-III
processor with TriLevel Cache.
- Larger: An AMD-K6-III processor-based PC can deliver
up to 2,368KB of total system cache-more than four times the size of
the 544KB maximum system cache of a Pentium III processor-based PC.
In general, the larger the cache, the better the system performance.
- Faster: The AMD-K6-III processor's 320KB of internal
cache-including a 256KB Level 2 (L2) cache in addition to the 64KB Level
1 (L1) cache that's standard in AMD-K6 family processors-races along
at the full speed of the processor.
- More flexible: The AMD-K6-III is the first desktop
PC processor to offer a 100-MHz frontside bus to an optional Level 3
(L3) external cache on the Super7™ platform. This flexible, three-level
cache design results in a maximum combined system cache that's unsurpassed
in the desktop PC industry.
