The Texas firm's K5-PR120 and K5-PR133 run at slower MHz clock frequencies but equal the Intel chips for application performance, according to the ubiquitous P-rating system. The chips slot straight into Socket 7 slots on Pentium motherboards. AMD cites Mercury Research market data that claims 40 per cent of systems sold in the October-December 1996 period will be "in the PR133 performance range".

AMD can be contacted by telephone on 01276-803100.
