Dailytech presents a look at AMD's server processor roadmap:
Over the last few months much as been revealed about AMD's next-generation quad-core architecture. This architecture, previously dubbed K8L by Henri Richard, is scheduled to be the first monolithic quad-core design.

Since unveiling the details of the chip, AMD has started to use the codename Barcelona to describe the server variant. The Barcelona chipset is a member of the Cities family -- all server-based AMD codenames for 2007 and 2008 are named after Cities. Desktop codenames are all named after Stars even though architecturally, many Stars and Cities CPUs are identical.
