Intel CEO talks about AMD's Barcelona

Posted on Wednesday, March 21 2007 @ 16:22:36 CET by

Paul Otellini, CEO of Intel, talked about AMD's upcoming quad-core Barcelona processor in an interview with CRN:
CRN: AMD said it is coming out mid-year with a quad core they say will blow the socks off Intel's quad core. AMD said it will offer at least a 40 percent improvement over what Intel has. Intel's response?
Otellini: We haven't seen them yet. No one has seen them yet. There have been no public demonstrations or benchmarks.

CRN: But if that estimate is true?
Otellini: They're on our prior technology, 65 nanometer. We have a smaller die, higher performance and better power efficiency.

CRN: Does Intel expect to stay there for the next 12 to 18 months.
Otellini: Yes.

CRN: Without a doubt?
Otellini: Yes.

Intel isn't sitting idle you realize. They've moved up the 45nm process and really only need to get the fabs with enough production to offer public cpu's for sale.

AMD has had 6 months of "put up or shut up" and they are sure talking the talk, but we haven't seen ANYTHING working yet. You know when Hammer was in prototype they were showing it ALL OVER, when back then it wasn't even up to production speeds yet. If they had something to show, they'd be showing it.

This is the same thing we asked of Intel. Show us Conroe, don't tell us. And they did. Now the shoe is on AMD's foot. Can they dance the same dance? Seems not.

I would be hardly surprised if Intel came out with 45nm higher performing chips BEFORE Barcelona came to market. Who else would be surprised at this? No one.
