CPU Includes 3D and Superscalar MMX Capability

Said to be the first Microsoft Windows-compatible x86 µP with 3DNow! technology, the AMD-K6-2 combines 3DNow! instructions and superscalar MMX capability to deliver lifelike images and graphics, big-screen sound and video, and an enhanced Internet experience. Software applications that leverage the forthcoming DirectX 6.0 API, as well as the OpenGL 1.2 API and 3Dfx Glide API, will automatically benefit from improved 3D performance as these APIs will be optimized for 3DNow! technology.
