As it stands, however, the Rev F chips will be more delayed than previously expected. AMD already pushed back its official "launch" announcement from July to August. Now we hear that HP doesn't expect to slot Rev F chips into boxes until "late September or the first week of October."More info at The Reg.
"AMD is privately saying that Rev F is a holding place for quad-core, since it will go into the same socket," one source tells us. "The best Intel can offer up at the moment in the four-way market is Tulsa, which I understand is going to shoot back up to 130W or so. Intel won't have anything viable until Tigerton, which is expected in the second half of '07.
AMD Opteron F delayed more than expected
