AMD will show off its quad-core Barcelona processors at Computex but Intel will also have some new chips to show off. Server makers claim the chip giant will present its native quad-core 45nm Harpertown server processor at Computex.
Intel will only demonstrate Harpertown-based products in its own booth, and the 45nm native dual-core processor, Wolfdale-DP, will be absent from the show, added the sources.

In an update to previous reports, Barcelona-based products will be displayed in both AMD's and its server partners' booths. However, only AMD’s booth will have performance testing, with other companies only showcasing their own products.

AMD will release its Barcelona processors with clock speeds ranging from 1.9-2.6GHz. However, in the initial launch, the clock speed will top out at 2.3GHz, while the 2.6GHz version will appear in the updated version, pointed out the sources.
