Behold, Klamath

MMX-enabled (multimedia) versions of the Pentium Pro processor, code- named Klamath, are going to be made available this Spring. Expect them to carry premium price tags. Adding to the price will be a supply shortage until Intel releases a new motherboard chipset later this year. When the chips are first released, Intel will package them on existing P6 motherboards. Eventually, a new motherboard chipset be released that include Klamath-specific functionality such as synchronous DRAM, an Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP), 33 Mbs disk drive access, and more. Of course, this new chipset will be expensive at first as well
