Heres what is says in english:



Hiroshige's Goto COMDEX Fall ' 97 reports AMD next term MPU
"AMD-K6 3D" with COMDEX preview! ! '

97/11/17? 21
(local hour) opening

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- - As for K6 3D the sample tip/chip appears more and more The real world is reproduced in the box of the computer. If all objects which appear in the virtual world inside the computer, the substance of the actual world in the same way raising with physical attribute, the hand is released, it falls if and, it hits, it is broken. AMD which only is attacked thoroughly vis-a-vis Intel, in order to show the power of MPU "AMD-K6 3D" of the next generation, prepared such an impressive demonstration.

As for K6 3D, until you say, the next generation K6 whom AMD throws to the next year first half without. It is the ambitious work that AMD will expand MMX individually, will precede to Intel more and more in the technical aspect. The same company this time released that sample tip/chip to the customer and the mass communications authorized personnel of part with COMDEX, flaunted the capability and showed.

The fact that AMD uses for the demonstration of K6 3D is 3D アドベンチャゲーム "Trespasser" where the American DreamWorks Interactive corporation is in the midst of developing. As for this game, movie "lost world: Being something which designates the world of ジェラシックパーク "as the stage, those which the player searching visiting do the island which the dinosaur frequents. And, AMD loaded this onto K6 3D is the schedule which becomes with one of the new software which directly uses new MMX order "AMD 3D technology".

AMD 3D being something which adds the new order 24 to former MMX order anew, with 1 clock makes plural floating point arithmetics possible. To MMX register of 64 bits, floating point data 2 of 32 bits packing converting it housed concretely, it tried to be able to execute transaction of operation simultaneously vis-a-vis these 2 data.

K6 3D the execution of of the complete parallel 2 with MMX unit being possible, because of that is seen that concurrency of the new floating point arithmetic order maximum of 4 is possible. And, as for this new order, you say that, presently such as geometry processing of 3D graphics it can accelerate the part where with only floating point arithmetic is done substantially.

- Actualizing the 3D game where the paradigm differs Well, DreamWorks, utilizing this advantage of K6 3D, has been about probably to actualize the game which is not so far. With Trespasser, physics (physical quality) the physics modeling technique which is defined is used vis-a-vis all 3D objects which appear. For example, raising the box of the wood which is placed on the land, if you drop, it is broken if and, you drop the stone into the water surface, the natural ripple spreads.

The actual world that way, has been reproduced in the game. These everything following to the physics which is set to object, are something which happens. Because of that, completely there is no scenario in this game. If the range of the physics which is set it is the ultimate virtual world which can happen with anything.

This reality and degree of freedom is the completely new experience. Because this reality is actualized, with Trespasser basically テキスチャマッピング is not used. For example, unevenness of grain of surface of lumber? ? If as for this, the usual 3D game to stick the texture of the grain about, but with Trespasser one one of this unevenness has been expressed with 3D object. Therefore, if direction of the light which hits against the lumber changes, also the shadow of unevenness of the surface changes.

But, because this kind of technique is used, with this game it became necessary to form enormous polygon. Furthermore, on that it does not calculate to physics. As for these in each case with acceleration in the rendering by the 3D graphic tip/chip for PC because it cannot correspond, the burden of CPU becomes the big game extremely. And, it is the case that the order whose K6 3D is new here is used. With COMDEX, as for AMD, the comparison that it did you play the demonstration which is the development middle of this Trespasser, the α edition sample of K6 3D of the same clock and on the both system of Pentium II.

Therefore the demonstration which AMD prepares if you mention the proper, it is proper, but the result was clear. Because the reality of the game is maintained frame rate was made identical, but because of that K6 resolution of the game picture reaches approximately 2 times, object is rough the difference of the extent which is conspicuous appeared. At least, at stage of this α edition, as for the reality of the level which it can be satisfied as the game, if it is not K6 3D, in order not to be able to actualize, it was visible.

In addition, with this demonstration, also filtering processing in rendering such as フォギング, bi- linear filtering and alpha blending etc. had gone with the software, but difference appeared clearly in regard to this. For example, if natural gradation expression and the like of フォギング was not K6 3D, it could not express. As for this, with K6 3D because it can designate room as CPU power, it means being able to make also rendering fine.

Though, the purpose of AMD is not to do all 3D processing with CPU to rendering, it has doing rendering and setup etc., as much as possible on graphic tip side, from K6 3D itself strengthens physics and geometry and etc. rich is 3D graphics that actualization we would like to face to direction easy.

- As for DreamWorks the reinforcements which do not ask for AMD AMD, you probably can say that with the latest demonstration, it can actualize it succeeded in showing the new paradigm effectively with K6 3D. Depending upon MMX expansion, not only saying, that simply from 3D graphics in high speed, becomes finer, proving the fact that it can actualize the 3D application where dimension differs completely, you showed. Furthermore, it is not the special high end PC where that loads the geometry processor and the like, in next year it can actualize with normal PC which enters into the hand for 1500 dollars, here probably is the most exciting point.

In addition, with this demonstration, as for AMD it was possible to show the fact that the powerful reinforcements appear in regard to the support of individual order of the respective company. As for this being important, as for MMX order of AMD 3D, to be different from former MMX, not to be the order which Intel is defined, because it is AMD individual expansion, because correspondence of the software was done doubt apparent. AMD at the time of the AMD 3D announcement in Japan, had emphasized that Microsoft supports with DirectX, but whether or not the application manufacturer uses the API as expected, it was unknown.

Furthermore, like physics, when it becomes the kind of software which uses AMD 3D order directly, whether or not it appears is truly, was feared. As for the latest demonstration, there probably is also the aim of denying the insecurity such as that.

Of course, you do not know yet the manufacturer other than DreamWorks how moves, but temporarily, as for opening breach, it seems that it is possible. By the way, also Cyrix and IDT have announced the expansion of MMX order in addition to AMD, but under present conditions there is no compatibility between these order フ.,according to AMD there is also a possibility the same company into the negotiation in order already to standardize order vis-a-vis the other 2 corporation, it had been supposed to have entered, commonly it is ordered is converted. As AMD, in order for silicon already to adjust to the order of certain K6 3D, you say that the invitation is applied.

Though, when it is 99 years, also Intel is looked at similar MMX expansion that the next generation P6 system MPU which, does (cord/code name Katmai) it throws. The industry authorized personnel as for this order group which is called "MMX2", naturally the order of AMD being the case that it is not compatibility, as for the x86MPU manufacturer probably means to be approached it corresponds to MMX2 at that point in time how. For example, perhaps at the point in time when MMX2 is released, individual order there is also a possibility of making both correspondences of MMX2 order. - AMD which suffers at the yield rate of K6 Temporarily, it is AMD which succeeds the preview of K6 3D with COMDEX, but of course good just news. Because in other words, as for AMD it suffers at the yield rate of K6.


The production volume of K6 as for having been less than rather has recognized AMD itself from plan of beginning. The fact that that presses the public finance of AMD is as known well. According to AMD as for the cause of that there is also the technical point, but you say that on the other hand artificial mistake and the like is cause, never is not the structure.

And, presently you explain yield rate that considerably it has improved, but until it proves that at the concrete quantity of shipment, insecurity probably will not go out. However, AMD to advance 0.25 micron shift quickly, to end of 2nd quarter of 98 years because it is the intention of moving to 0.25 micron process completely, if yield rate improves well, there is a possibility of reaching the point where considerable production volume can be guaranteed. Speaking conversely, unless it succeeds 0.25 shifts and the improvement of yield rate well, being driven rather, perhaps AMD the stripe it can also see uninformed.

In addition, AMD with COMDEX of this year the last year when it is plain was ready the lively booth which considerably changed image. Providing also stage, it appealed positively e.g., it changes into the production of the type which directly it appeals to the end user, expansion and AGP chip set of the socket 7 platform which AMD calls super 7, it displays AMD K6 of 300MHz.

This of course in order to make the image renovate for AMD is the present applying. As for one of the element which now becomes obstacle for AMD, the customer (the PC manufacturer) and penetrance of the name in the end user. If the enterprise user, the occasion where PC is introduced in large quantities, AMD you just heard "there is no Intel? Just a little it is troubled, ", it means not to be able to have responsibility as an introduction charge. Is not it does, the insecurity for such compatibility even in the private user it is about the enterprise user.

That, pulling, becomes the cause of making the adoption of AMD the PC manufacturer hold out. In other words, if here is not broken down, at least in the world of PC, being the case that it cannot expand the market, it probably is the place that it came out lively there.

BTW this article is from 1997 in case you didnt notice. Its mostly talking about the hardware of AMD and not really tresspasser.

on the trespasser box it has the raptor on the stand, but the stand has a second raptor on another side.
