AMD Shanghai Rushed in, Hits Market in Q4 2008
AMD seems to have decided that it won't face any more flack in the computing industry owing to the lack of success the Barcelona / Agena (K10) architecture compared to a determined Intel that seems to be going for the kill with a string of products lined up, Intel in fact has looked forward four years in time based on its IDF slides. On the eve of IDF, AMD executives said the company's 45-nanometer Shanghai processor will enter the market by the fourth quarter of 2008. The AMD processor is designed to compete against the Intel Nehalem processor, especially in the volume two-socket server market.
AMD Shanghai is touted to be based on an architecture that can be considered a drastic change from its current K8, K10 architecture, of the nature of that we've seen between K7 and K8. In fact AMD claims it will be ready with this server platform and its 2 processor and 4 processor variants before Intel does.
A lot is at stake for AMD, the success of Shanghai would open the flood-gates for several desktop and consumer implementations to bring back a vastly competitive processor market.
