AMD: Barcelona 50% faster than quad-core Xeon

Posted on Monday, April 23 2007 @ 12:27:48 CEST by

AMD claims its quad-core Barcelona processor will be up to 50 percent faster than the quad-core Xeon 5300-series from Intel.

The firm says the Barcelona will be 50% faster in floating point applications and 20% in integer performance.

The clockspeeds of the Barcelona processors weren't released. Intel's quad-core Xeon is currently available at 2.66GHz but limited supply of a 3GHz is already available.

AMD promises a lot, but we would prefer to see some real chips and real benchmark data.

UPDATE: More details about the benchmark AMD used.

Kinda believe it when we see it. But if it does that well kudos for AMD.

Intel should not be taking 1.5 years to get Yorktown out the door, after Conroe...

And AMD needed something genuinely better to backup their claims of matching Intel no matter what. To have been caught with their pants down by Conroe was a bad sign of how complacent they'd become.
