wondering if members of the forum did come across these ones, working samples

also, any stability issues under Win95 or Win98?

I had a K6-200MHz briefly. It wasn't an ES. I had a production version, purchased in summer 1997. They had some bug that caused crashes if you had more than 32MB of ram. I forget the exact details, but I was able to replicate it on my 64MB machine. I ended up returning it and getting a Pentium 200MMX instead.

had the opposite experience: I got my first computer with Pentium 233, a week later I replace it with K6 266 and for next 10 years I was hooked on AMD CPUs :)

got nearly every version of K6 in my machine, with a late motherboard upgrade - skipped the K7 SlotA years - and went with Socket 462 Athlons.

Good memories. Used one in my first complete build. I tried to use it with a voodo rush there were so many issues with the card I got that I got a swap to a good 2d card and a 3d only voodo card for free. Had it with windows 95 and was rock solid. No crashes at all.
