Default Vendors Begin Support for Barcelona

Nice to see that Asus is 'on board'. ..

There's lots of AMD news being spewed these days. Stocks today dropped below $14USD for the first time since about May 9th, most likely down as a result of fears sparked by yesterday's news of the AMD exec selling his shares.

A trio of IT vendors are preparing server platforms that will support Advanced Micro Devices' soon-to-be-released quad-core Opteron processors, dubbed "Barcelona."

At the Computex trade show in Taipei, Taiwan, June 5, AMD announced that Supermicro, Tyan Computer and Uniwide Computer will be among the first vendors to offer server platforms based on the chip maker's quad-core processor. Barcelona is set to be released later this year.
In addition, ASUS, a motherboard designer and Taiwanese computer maker, announced that it will support Barcelona as well. The release of Barcelona is expected to boost AMD's fortunes in the server market. In the last six months, AMD has lost ground to rival Intel since the quad-core Xeon processors debuted in November.
