Part of the Microprocessors glossary:

K7 was the development name for the Athlon personal computer microprocessor from AMD , the microprocessor and flash memory maker. The Athlon became the first microprocessor for mainstream PCs to support a 200 MHz system bus and to achieve a 1 gigahertz clock speed . As Athlon, different versions of the K7 are built with either the 0.25 micron infrastructure that is used in the popular K6 microprocessor or, as for the 1 GHz model, with a 0.18 micron infrastructure.
