    Well it all depends how Nehalem does in the marketplace, really. The new Shanghai AMDs might be a quantum leap over Barcelona, but how they square up to Nehalem will be the real challenge.

    Personally, I'm hoping AMD do well in this cycle - nothing like solid competition to push things forward :)

    Well at the rate Nahalem is going and I mean in a negative fashion with its recent issues and so forth, this could be very promising and I too hope that AMD comes out on top, ya ya I know intel fans but honestly it would be a good thing believe me if AMD was to win this round over Intel, it will help in many things even you Intel fans will benny from it. ;)

    That die shot is a 90nm dual-core, not Barcelona.

    I think you're being confused by the large cache.
    That's 6mb of L3 at the bottom, if you look above that you will see the 4 cores.

    AMD should get a good kickstart with this as intel seem to be taking a long time coming up with a 4s solution. That should give Shanghai a 12 month lead in.

    I know. I couldn't find a die shot of a Shanghai chip.

    The new Denebs are 45nm at 3.00Ghz goodness. Should be interesting.

    That`s definetely a (pretty old) dualcore...looked at it for way too long ;-)

    Well, let`s hope it compares well to the Xeon-range in Performance-per-Watt.
    This is where AMD makes money, not with our gaming processors ;-)
