As you can tell, the MMX has not been publicly released. It is
scheduled for public release by Intel after 1 Jan 1997 from what I can
Cyrix, on the other hand, is already making their newest chips
(The M2) MMX compatible. They expect to have added the 57 extra
instructions and release the new chip by this time (First Quarter
1997) according to a May '96 press release.
