Intel clocks 45nm at 3GHz to beat AMD's K10

FUD Zilla predicts Intel will have a good chance to beat AMD's Barcelona, Agena, Agena FX and Budapest processors with its 45nm chips:
Intel knows that AMD has a very powerful CPU and that K10 has a very good performance per watt figures. It also scores really well for its clock speed.

But Intel can go beyond 3GHz as soon as it goes to 45 nanometre. Harpertown the first Intel's 45 nm server part is scheduled for Q4 2007 but the real game starts with Yorkfield in Q1 2008.

AMD should not be that far away with its 45 nanometre production as it is currently on the schedule to start the product in first half of 2008. With Shanghai and Montreal out the game is on, one more time.

AMD misses it's production schedules by 2 to 3 quarters every single time they make a major shift. Now they are cash poor. Expect it to be even worse.
