Record Benchmarks: AMD quad-cores really shipping

With news of record benchmarks, AMD has begun shipping quad core Opteron processors for standard servers. While this should help them compete in the chip wars, they are going to have to do more to keep up:
“AMD is therefore feverishly working on the launch of its own 45 nm technology, and the first 45 nm processors are expected to be released in the second half of 2008 and include larger caches, among other things.” Full Story

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.

One Response to Record Benchmarks: AMD quad-cores really shipping

    Your comment " AMD really shipping" does not mean anything for the following reason"
    When AMD tells you they are shipping this does not mean the units with their chips are selling to the consumers. The only people who can tell us that are the companies trying to sell their servers, etc, with those chips installed.
    As far as "record benchmarks" these figures are based on AMD’s testing. Some independant testing facilities reported they still had not gotten the new chips from AMD to test, in spite of requesting them.
