Default Production AMD Barcelonas to arrive mid-August

CHIP FIRM Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has told its distributors and re-sellers to expect production quantities of its up-and-coming Barcelona chip in the middle of August.
That is the traditional time the channel gears up for its sales push although it is a generally quiet time for everyone else.
The long-toothed will remember that this er, phenomenon, has happened before. AMD makes a big push at Computex and then when all the fluff has settled, real chips start appearing in mid-August.
But it seems AMD fluffed its Computex launch a bit, and that caused a bit of a kerfuffle.

That's not too far off. Now we can just hope that they blow our socks off...

Can't help but admit I am hoping for something special. End of August I either get a new AMD or C2D. This 4800+ is just disappointing to say the least.....
