Chip upgrade specialist Evergreen Technologies is planning to add a K6-2 processor to its PCI upgrade boards, hot on the heels of the release of its K6-2 333MHz with 3D Now! Spectra socket-based upgrade product.

The company launched an Intel PII-based chip upgrade on a PCI card last month under the name of EclipsePCI. Evergreen spokesman Andrew Calzetti said that the AMD-based EclipsePCI card should be out in Q2 this year, and that the company was merely responding to demand for AMD product.

The Spectra 333 socket upgrade enables existing Pentium or K6-based PCs to upgrade to the 333MHz AMD. It is available now for £169 plus VAT and customers are provided with a lifetime guarantee and a free phone technical support hot line.
