AMD Expects Quad-Core "Barcelona" to "Outperform Clovertown by 40%"
January 25, 2007 4:12 PM
AMD has high hopes for its upcoming native quad-core design
When it comes to quad-core processors for the desktop and server arenas, Intel has pretty much had the market to itself since November 2006 (if you don't count
AMD's Quad FX platform
). Intel's quad-core processors were
officially announced on November 14
in the form of the desktop-oriented Core 2 Extreme QX6700 and the server-oriented
Xeon 5300 series.
Intel has been using its quad-core
processors to grab marketshare back from AMD in the server markets and
has been putting significant pricing pressure on AMD
. "Early indications are that
is contributing a meaningful amount of business to Intel in a surprisingly short period of time. It's not marketing fluff," said Mercury Research analyst Dean McCarron.
Technology Business Research's John Spooner added that
"has allowed Intel to put some pricing pressure on AMD. Intel can tout a lower price per core, given that it's pricing much of the quad-core Xeon 5300 line the same as its dual-core Xeon 5100 chips."
AMD isn't taking this news lightly and is
prepared to fight back with its native quad-core
in mid 2007. Intel's quad-core chips put two dual-core chips onto a single package while AMD's approach has one quad-core chip on a single package.
"We expect across a wide variety of workloads for
by 40 percent," said AMD's corporate vice president for server and workstation products, Randy Allen.
quad-core processors will be built on a 65nm manufacturing process and the company also claims that they will have the same thermal and electrical envelope as existing dual-core Opterons. The processors will also feature
2MB of shared L3 cache
as well as
(AMD-V) technology for x86 virtualization.
processors will also fit nicely into existing Socket F systems and
will only require a BIOS update for system compatibility
"You can bet that Sony built a long-term business plan about being successful in Japan and that business plan is crumbling." -- Peter Moore, 24 hours before his Microsoft resignation
