Could New AMD Quad-Core Opteron Defect Its Rival @ 2.3GHz?!
 
"AMD has recently seen rival Intel win a couple of rounds. The company knows that would be a trouble if the situation keeps on. Coming back on the quad-core front, New AMD Quad-Core Opteron (Barcelona) will be soon releasing in the next quarter of the year. Natively designed with new micro-architecture, the chip maker claimed the new processors will out-perform its rival by up to 40 per cent. Having checked on the releasing plan, the maximum speed of Barcelona in first release has only got 2.3GHz. The plan clearly states that the maximum speed of the whole series till Q208 would be a bit faster to 2.6GHz only. Could these new AMD quad-core Opteron defect its rival at this low speed is being questioned?"
