I was not very good but it was fun working on it. I have a lot of old 5.

The K5 was definitely disappointing. The K5 came out relatively late and never sold well despite its qualities, the K5 PR was the last chip of the series. It was also 3v pin-compatible with Intel’s Pentium, enabling it to be used in the widely available ” Socket 7 “-based motherboards.

I still have the old 5. I also did the benchmark This machine was new two years ago?

Quickly realising that the actual K6 performance was the same as the PR2 this marketing scheme was dropped. The main advantage of this particular microprocessor is that it was designed to fit into existing desktop designs provessor Pentium -branded CPUs. It still continued to exist for a while in the Embedded markets and in countries where cheap computers made sense.
