Next up is the term K8L, something that was not in the AMD literature, or anywhere else until we posted it. It has since crept into the lexicon, and has appeared in many AMD documents, several of which contradict each other. What we were referring to with the name was the doubled FP parts that kicked off the 'hound' series of code names.Read on over here.
So, up to that point, there was no K8L, and several high ups, engineers, and generalised personnel at AMD have asked me where that name came from. Short answer, Intel. I don't know what should worry AMD more, that Intel knew about the hounds before we did, or that AMD now has dozens of Powerpoints out there with a Santa Clara inspired code name all over them. Time to go on a document scrubbing session....
AMD may have big plans for next year
