AMD Demonstrates 3GHz Quad-Core Processors
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Seeking to counter criticisms that the new Barcelona K10 Quad-core will be difficult to ramp up, DailyTech claims that AMD has demonstrated two 3Ghz Quad-core systems at the companys recent gathering.
Heres what they had to say:
To kick off AMD's Analyst Day at the company's Sunnyvale, California headquarters, AMD demonstrated a system running on a quad-core desktop 3.0 GHz processor. The processor, codenamed Agena, will be the flagship AMD high-end offering.
The system used standard cooling, though company officials would not disclose how much power the system consumed. In addition to the unannounced processor, the system also included a three-way CrossFire configuration.
Since they wouldnt give the attendees full access to the systems, I suspect these were very highly tweaked processors. Nevertheless, it is reassuring to see that AMD will, in the future, be able to increase their processors clock speeds to competitive levels.
