|/AB||Advanced Micro Devices Inc. has introduced a new microprocessor that|
|outperforms the fastest chips made by the Intel Corp. The chip, known as|
|the Athlon, has a top speed of 650 MHz, edging out Intel's new 600-MHz|
|version of its flagship microprocessor, the Pentium III. AMD said IBM and|
|Compaq Computer Corp. had already agreed to use the Athlon in some of their|
|computers. Shipments to computer manufacturers began last month and the|
|company expects personal computers using the chip to be available later|
|this month. The Athlon is available in a range of clock speeds, from 500 to|
|650 MHz, and AMD says that at each speed, its chip outperforms the|
|comparable Pentium III. The 650-MHz AMD Athlon is priced at $849 when|
|purchased in 1,000-unit lots; the 600-MHz Athlon is $615; the 550-MHz is|
|$449, and the 500-MHz is $249. AMD has been caught in a price war with|
|Intel that has hurt its revenues. If the company is able to manufacture|
|enough chips in a timely manner, a recent problem for AMD, it may be able|
|to position itself in the marketplace to compete with Intel, especially at|
|the high end, where Intel can not be as aggressive with its discounts.|
