AMD says Barcelona will be 40% faster than Intel's Clovertown

Posted on Wednesday, January 24 2007 @ 16:13:45 CET by

Together with its disappointing financial results, AMD made some bold claims about its quad-core processors.

Randy Allen, AMD's corporate vice president for server and workstation products, boasted that the upcoming Barcelona quad-core server processor will be significantly faster than Intel's quad-core Clovertown processor.

Allen claims the Barcelona processor will be 40 percent faster than Intel's Clovertown:
"We expect across a wide variety of workloads for Barcelona to outperform Clovertown by 40 percent," Allen said. The quad-core chip will also outperform AMD's current dual-core Opterons on "floating point" mathematical calculations by a factor of 3.6 at the same clock rate, he said.
The first Barcelona processors from AMD are expected in May.
