AMD dismisses claims that it's quad-core architecture can't ramp clock frequency
To kick off AMD's Analyst Day at the company's Sunnyvale, California headquarters, AMD
demonstrated a system
running on a quad-core desktop 3.0 GHz processor. The processor, codenamed
, will be the flagship AMD high-end offering.
The system used standard cooling, though company officials would not disclose how much power the system consumed. In addition to the unannounced processor, the system also included a
configuration. Two ATI Radeon HD 2900 graphics adaptors provided video acceleration for the system; the third, we were told, provided physics support for the demonstration.
AMD made two systems running the
processors available for media to play select games. The company would not let anyone view the system properties details, but sent the two featured images to press beforehand.
AMD's quad-core Opteron launch, slated for
later this summer
, is expected to debut at 2.0 GHz. Company roadmaps ramped this clock frequency launch down several times -- the company's original roadmap launch plans indicated we would see a 2.6 GHz processor at launch.
An AMD engineer, speaking on terms of anonymity, claimed to
that the company took on several unplanned respins for the K10-family. "We ramped the spin aggressively. It's going to bring the clock frequencies we need for the desktop," he said.
The company would not comment on when the 3.0 GHz
would debut, though the company has previously indicated Phenom will ship for volume by the 2007 holiday season.
: According to
, Charlie Demerjian was allowed to confirm the system core frequency was 3.0 GHz from the system BIOS.

I'm glad to see it too, but we won't know any of that until they launch, I believe.
