About

Hi there! If you are here you may wonder who runs this strange website about an old piece of hardware? Well I am just an average guy who has good memories from the 1998-2000 period when I was a teenager and bought my first computer with my own money.

The computer I bought was an AMD K6-2 450, Asus P5A, 128MB RAM and an ATI Rage 128 and it gave me hours and hours of fun on great games. Now we are a good couple of years later and find myself having fun rebuilding a similar computer and playing on it. This website only exists so people still can find useful information about the K6-era which is now long gone…

By the way I work in the TV industry and I absolutely don’t know everything about the K6…any feedback is welcome! If you want to contact me, just drop an e-mail to webmaster@amd-k6.com

I have nothing to do with AMD or any other hardware company from that time and I’m probably infringing lots of copyrights with all the files uploaded here, but I guess they don’t really care now.

  1. Are you familiar with Jan Steunebrink’s page on the K6-2+ and K6-III+? Among other things, he’s patched a variety of BIOS’s to accept the “+” versions.

    I used his patched BIOS on my old Asus P/I-P55T2P4 to run a K6-III+ many years ago.

    Also, I have a variety of programs for playing withe the K6-2/III, stuff I collected back in the 1999-2000 period. Some of them are useful for overclocking, write-combining control, and other things that I don’t remember. There’s even a set of official Glide driver files from AMD for playing Quake 2 in an optimized 3DNow! mode. Let me know if you’re interested.

  2. Wow! I think we are around the same age. I have put together amd system as well. Mine was k6-2 350 with Asus P5A + Creative Labs Voodoo Banshee AGP.

    It is great to know someone else share the same experience/memory as I am.

  3. Hello world!
    Could anyone point where I can buy GA-5AX or at least GA-5AA? I’ve been monitoring ebay for weeks now – no luck.

      • Thanks, will do.
        Another problem is overseas shipping. I spotted a decent rev5.1 last week, but it was a GSP item. No idea why sellers even want to deal with these furtive crooks. They wanted $275 for shipping! That’s ten times the regular USPS FC-international. Seller didn’t understand that (or didn’t want to) and offered a $10 discount. I laughed.
