With AMD scheduled to showcase its new quad-core Opteron processors (Barcelona) at Computex Taipei 2007, Intel also plans to demonstrate its 45nm native quad-core server processors (Harpertown) at the show, according to sources at server makers.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.
