FUD Zilla says the 45nm AMD Deneb processor is on track for Q4 2008 but believes it will have a hard time against Intel's upcoming Nehalem processors. AMD will once again need to entice users with lower pricing and that's not really a good strategy if you're a loss-making firm.
If all goes well by November and maybe even in October AMD will have some of its native quad-core 45nm chips out and at the same time if not even earlier Intel will start shipping Nehalem.
Deneb ends up a bit faster than Yorkfield quad core but it simply cannot compete with Nehalem, at least not clock to clock.
We heard that 3GHz Deneb comes a month or two after the launch and we all know that Nehalem launches at 3.2GHz, a speed that will win against 3.2GHz Deneb.
