mP6 ► mP6-II
The Rise mP6 was a superpipelined and superscalar microprocessor designed by Rise Technology to compete with the Intel Pentium line.
Rise Technology had spent 5 years developing a x86 compatible microprocessor, and finally introduced it in November 1998 as a low-cost, low-power alternative for the Super Socket 7 platform, that allowed for higher Front-side bus speeds than the previous Socket 7 and that made it possible for other CPU manufacturers to keep competing against Intel, that had moved to the Slot 1 platform.
Rise mP6 Kirin/6441
Kirin was the only Rise mP6 processor that was available on the market at all. It was manufactured with 250 nm technology and was designed for Super Socket 7 like all mP6 processors.
Rise mP6 Lynx/6510
The Rise mP6 codename Lynx never made it to the market officially; only engineering samples were produced. Lynx utitlized a 180 nm manufacturing process featuring 3.6 million transistors - as much as its predecessor.
- Engineering samples only: PR150, PR166, PR233, PR366
