    A small piece of information that should help to clarify matters.

    AMD have renamed the AM5x86 series of chips. They are now
    designated AM486DX5, also they no longer have the -Pxx suffix but
    have -PRxx (Performace Rating) The chips are being 'repositioned'
    for the embedded market and they wanted to avoid suggesting that
    they are related to Pentiums and their attendant heat problems.
