AMD Barcelona : To Launch Or Not To Launch?

Posted on Sunday, Aug 19 2007 @ 16:24 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
AMD has been deafeningly silent about the Quad-Core Opteron (Barcelona), ever since we covered details of the processor in our technology report. It's already mid-August and there has still been no news of the long-anticipated launch. However, we recently learned that AMD will be holding a hush-hush press briefing next week. Will this finally be the launch date? Or will it be delayed till September?

"When we attended the press briefing just over a month ago on the Quad Core AMD Opteron (Barcelona) processor, we were told unequivocally that AMD will launch the long-delayed processor in August and in quantity, come hell or high water. Yields were said to be good, and everything was on track for an August launch, with the desktop Phenom processors coming soon after."
