Intel is getting ready to release its 45nm
processors. On that note Intel also says it reclaimed
market share. AMD's K10 processor will be named Phenom.
"Barcelona for Desktop" is the name for Agena FX, the real populator
of QuadFX motherboards. This quad-core CPU comes with quite a lot of cache (256KB
of L1, 2MB of L2 and 2MB of L3 cache) and sits in either S1207 or S1207+ socket.
All products with this core will be named the Phenom FX. Agena without the FX
moniker is nothing else but "Barcelona AM2+", or the Barcelona core
for the single-socket use and will be branded as Phenom X4. Hardware-wise, specs
remain the same, only real difference is the number of HyperTransport 1.0/3.0
