SubjectRe: AMD

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.
