Intel has set the launch date for its
based quad-core Xeon processor family. The company intends to launch seven new
based models ranging from 2.0-to-3.16 GHz on November 11, according to a posting on
Intel’s reseller webpage
. Standard “E” bin and performance “X” bin processors launch on November 11.
Intel Xeon processors carrying the “E” designation feature 80-watt TDP ratings while the “X” bin processors have higher 120-watt TDP ratings. Intel does not plan to launch the low-power “L” models until Q1’08, with two models in the pipeline.
Strangely, Intel never issued a formal announcement for the launch of
nor has the November 11 date showed up on roadmaps. Instead, the launch date popped up on a public webpage for resellers.

The problem is that the first release of Barcelona will only come at 2.0GHz speeds. The "good stuff" won't be out until November/December for Phenom X4, and who knows when the higher speed Opterons will be released.
I still think it is a positive thing for AMD that Intel isn't releasing their new chips faster than the 3.16GHz parts for their initial release, so AMD may be able to surprise some people in the fourth quarter. Many businesses tend to buy in the first quarter(when the new budgets come in for the year), while consumers look for holiday launches. If AMD is able to get Phenom X4 out in time for a late November release at 3.0GHz speeds, people should be fairly happy.
