    AMD gave the press a sneak preview of their upcoming, 64-bit, Hammer chip. The Hammer generation represents AMD's final hope of catching up with Intel both in the desktop and server markets. Hammer also represents one of the biggest differences of opinion between the two competing chip makers. Intels' current plans do not allow any backward compatibility for their 64-bit chip, the Itanium, while AMD are promoting their version as a smooth transition option.
    This transition was made apparent in AMD's presentation during which they presented Hammer-based computers running a 64-bit version of Linux as well as Microsoft Windows.

    Recent rumours suggest that Intel has been so shaken-up by the reception of Hammer that plans for a hybrid 32-bit / 64-bit processor, codenamed Yamhill, are under development.

    The first version of AMD's Hammer range, codenamed Clawhammer, is expected to be released in Q4, 2002.
