  What is AMD K6-3? Processor Core Split Voltage L2 Cache CPU
Where the K6 III is different is that it sees its level 2 cache memory integrated directly onto the processor core.
This is unlike earlier versions of the K6 family which have their level 2 cache located on the motherboard running at bus speeds of 66, 95 & 100 MHz.
The impact of the K6 III having 256 Kb of level 2 cache running at full clock speed are considerable.

The AMD K6 is a Pentium-class microprocessor, manufactured by AMD, which superseded the K5.
The AMD K6 is based on the Nx686 microprocessor that NexGen was designing when it was acquired by AMD.
The final iteration of the K6 design was released in May 1998 running at 300 MHz and continued with the K6-2 and the K6-III.

K6 performs best when the BIOS recognizes the chip, so its full potential can be utilized.
The K6 was followed by the K6-2 (and later the Athlon), which gave AMD an enormous success in the late 1990's.
This processor of May 28, 1998 was marketed as K6-2, and like the model 7 version of the original K6, it is manufactured with 0.25 micron technology.

 timmy's AMD K6 2 and K6 III Processor Guide for the M571
When a K6 3 is installed on an M571, the 512KB mainboard cache normally used as Level 2 cache functions as a Level 3 cache, and adds an additional 5% performance increase in some applications.
The K6 3 incorporated the equivalent of 21.3 million transistors in its design and is the most powerful processor to be successfully adapted to M571 3.2, 3.2a, and 7.0 boards.
K6 2/3+ processors are not compatible with M571 3.2, 3.2a, or 7.0 BIOS including the 4/21/99 release.

AMD K6 David and Goliath: the AMD K6 Some of the most exciting news in technology this year is still going unnoticed by sim fans.
The K6 by AMD, the company that made mediocre 386 and 486 knockoffs some years ago, is poised to take the head off the giant: Intel.
The K6 is NOT simply an Intel knock-off; it's a sophisticated sixth-generation x86 hybrid that seems to have successfully managed design problems that have plagued the Pentium line for years.

 The AMD K6 FAQ - Performance
Yes, the AMD K6 is a good candidate for successful overclocking with a clock multiplier increase, higher bus speed, or both.
The most popular K6 overclocking configuration is the K6/200 (66MHz x 3) running as a K6/225 (75MHz x 3).
Therefore, AMD K6 throughput on many FP operations is half that of the Intel units.

 K6 test units prove average in lab test
Generally, however, the K6 scored far behind the 266-MHz Pentium IIs the lab has tested and was almost equal with the 233-MHz Pentium MMX.
That is because the K6 has Accelerated Graphics Port accelerators, whereas the Pentium MMX predates the new video ports [GCN, Oct. 20, 1997, Page 24].
NT ran fine on the K6, but the chassis was from an older hardware generation and had no mouse port.

In execution, however, the design was not simple: with 21.4 million transistors, it was a very large chip to manufacture with early 1999 technology, and the K6 core design did not scale well past 500 MHz.
By the time the global CPU shortage was over, AMD had developed revised versions of the K6 family: the K6-2+ and the K6-III+.
AMD continued to devote their marketing resources to the Athlon and neither part became well-known outside the industry, but both had modest success and became firm favourites with the overclocking community.

 AMD renames K6, may reprice | CNET News.com
Advanced Micro Devices has renamed the K6 3D chip just before its launch and given some indications that it may try to price its lead processor against Pentium II chips for the first time.
The K6 3D is now the K6-2, chief executive officer Jerry Sanders announced yesterday at meeting for AMD shareholders.
It features better floating point performance than standard K6 chips, an important feature for pixel manipulation, and is compatible with motherboards featuring a 100-MHz system bus, which improve the speed at which main memory and the processor communicate.

 AMD K6
The K6 is not a direct clone of the Pentium family at all, because it is its own design.
The newest K6, the 266, drops the internal voltage all the way down to 2.2V, as a result of its using the state of the art 0.25 micron process.
In terms of performance, the K6 is quite similar to the Pentium Pro at the same clock speed, and tends to be slightly faster than the Pentium with MMX.

 Pentium II, K6 out of the gate (InfoWorld)
Although the Pentium II and K6 can accomplish certain multimedia functions (such as video, audio, and compression and decompression) as much as five times faster than their non-MMX cousins (at least, according to Intel and AMD), programs such as Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word won't work any faster.
For example, the L1 cache on the K6 chip is composed of a 32KB instruction cache and a 32KB data cache.
The K6 is an attractive alternative for those who want a faster processor with MMX capability without paying the price for an Intel 200-MHz MMX chip, which costs about 25 percent more.

The K6-III is a revised version of the original K6 core, and the improvements AMD has made to this already competitive processor are impressive.
AMD's hustle in delivering 3DNow was no doubt driven in part by the fact that the K6 had taken some heat for its relatively lackluster performance in floating-point-intensive applications and games.
Socket 7-based processors like the Pentium and K6 have been hampered in the past by their level-2 cache design; their motherboard-based caches sit behind the system bus, so a K6 on a 66MHz bus can only access its L2 cache at 66MHz.

The K6 line's only successors, the K6-2+ and K6-III+ CPUs - both based on the design of the discontinued K6-III but manufactured at 0.18µ - are targeted for mobile applications although they employ a standard Socket 7 interface and some units have found their way into OEM sales.
The K6 processors were first released at 0.35µ and speed grades of 166, 200, and 233MHz; 233MHz were achieved mostly by raising the core voltage to 3.1v, with the nasty side effect generating excessive heat.
Later the core was produced at 0.25µ, allowing for cooler operation, lower core voltages and higher operating frequencies, and released at 233, 266, and 300MHz.

This bad-boy will be AMD's successor to their first generation K6 processor, although it has been referred to as the AMD K6+ for some time now, the K6-266 will be a normal AMD K6 with a few interesting improvements on the original design.
AMD will continue to pursue their high goals even after the K6 processor dies out, especially with the rumored compatibility between Slot-1 and AMD's upcoming K7 to be released in 1999.
The performance of the AMD K6 under Windows 95 is excellent, however the FPU Mark scores are a bit low compared to Intel's Pentium MMX and Pentium II processors.

Furthermore, most FSB settings over 100MHz on Super 7 boards are not guaranteed, success at using them is questionable, and may require additional steps such as disabling on-board cache, even if the speed is officially listed in the manual.
Due to the limitations of the linear Vcore regulator on this board, a CPU upgrade adapter is needed to run the K6 series CPUs on this board.

Then came the AMD K6, which was supposed to offer performance greater than any Intel processor, once again, at a lower cost.
When the K6 was finally introduced, it struggled to compete with the Pentium Pro, and left a minor gap between itself and Intels desktop class of processors, the Pentium MMX.
In the past, this goal has been met to a certain degree, with the K6, you needed to have a board that supported the unique core voltages of the processor, and with the K6-2 you needed to have a Super7 compliant motherboard in order to get the full benefit of your processor.
