long delay on Barcelona be worth the wait? Recently, AMD has revised their performance estimates for their upcoming architecture, and are claiming that it will outperform Clovertown by around 40% at any given time
. On top of that, they claim that in some areas it'll be as high as 50%. They even claim that on their next release, Intel's highest-performing Quad Core will lack by as much as 20%. Where are they drawing these figures from? They are not releasing specific clock speed figures for the new CPUs.
It's a bit late in the game for AMD to be trying to win on paper announcements, so hopefully they have more to run on than this later in the year.
