I Always Prefer 1080p
AMD unwrapped a few more details about its upcoming quad-core server and workstation processor "Barcelona" at the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC). While the announcements focus on the power efficiency of the processor, the company tells conference attendees that it is confident about regaining the performance crown from Intel's Xeon 5300 series processors.

With a launch date that is believed to be scheduled towards the end of the second quarter of this year, AMD has begun to build momentum around its first quad-core processor, code-named "Barcelona." The new Opteron processor has the difficult task to stop the current freefall of dual-core Opteron average selling prices, put AMD back into a leadership position in the 2P server/workstation market and increase the firm's advantage in the 4P+ systems market.
