AMD Phenom Pre-Launch update

As the official launch of the AMD quad-core Opteron (Barcelona) processors in August and the desktop Phenom processors later this year draw close, AMD is rapidly ramping up media coverage of the new core architecture. You can count on more media coverage and updates on the new processors over the coming weeks.

As we have seen in the AMD Quad-Core Opteron (Barcelona) Technology Report, AMD will start with the launch of the server/workstation Quad-Core Opteron processors. These processors comes with a whole range of interesting new features. Not only will they have greater processing capability than the current Opteron processors, they will also have a new three-tier cache structure, much better power efficiency and new virtualization capabilities.

All that advanced capabilities may not be able to salvage AMD's situation though, especially since they gave Intel such a long, massive lead with the innumerable delays of the new processors. In fact, AMD still isn't able to definitively confirm when they will launch the Agena/Kuma desktop processors, only that it will be released before the end of this year. That certainly doesn't sound too encouraging.
