Quad-Core AMD Opteron demonstrated by MSI, Supermicro, TYAN and Uniwide
AMD took the opportunity at Computex to show
running the Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors, codenamed
, with the help of MSI, Supermicro, TYAN and Uniwide
The AMD quad-core processors are designed to drop-in (following a BIOS upgrade) with all existing AMD Opteron processor-based systems using DDR2 memory, while also enabling new platform capabilities such as those being demonstrated today.
One vendor demonstrated
, running at 1.6GHz. According to engineers familiar with the chip technology, the current AMD
samples are not scaling core frequencies well. AMD partners confirmed the highest running, POST and OS capable,
processor is 2.0 GHz. AMD previously posted benchmarks of a
simulated 2.6 GHz
“We commend AMD for its non-disruptive roadmaps, allowing for a smooth upgrade from dual-core to quad-core,” said Danny Hsu, president, TYAN. “Streamlining and mitigating the complexities customers often face when upgrading their IT infrastructure is especially important in today’s competitive marketplace. TYAN has collaborated with AMD since 2001, and we will continue to support and take advantage of the customer-centric innovation AMD is offering in its quad-core processors when they are made available later this year.”
AMD roadmaps show
-based Opteron processors will launch in July, but the general consensus from partners is the processor isn’t performing well enough for a July launch.
will launch later this summer, in the July, August kind of time frame -- followed by [consumer chips] on the desktop... You'll see that in the Christmas line-up,” stated Robert Rivet, AMD executive vice president and CFO, just a few months ago.

Possibly but when compared to Intel demonstrating 3.33GHZ Yorkfield 6 months before launch, against AMD's Budapest/Bareclona's at 1.6GHZ 1-2 months before launch. This just doesn't inspire much confidence.

"before 1-2 months from launch"... yes, its the orig date, but didnt u read that text at all?? Many of u saying same, not very good at few months before lauch, but hey guys, u know that christmas is still far away ;)

It says it very clearly i think, it was supposed to launch in july, but amd vice president himself said it will be seen in christmas line-up, & christmas isnt 1-2 months away, is it now? :D
