Icon1 AMD shows off Barcelona at 3Ghz

I GUESS THE speed path problems with Barcelona were a bit overblown. At the analyst day this morning, AMD demoed a 3Ghz Phenom running the new 'Tri-Fire multi-GPU' setup.

The question is wheter this is some very good sample to calm down the analysts or if it is indicating that the yields are great.

PCI express bandwidth enough for GPU physics use?

Raw PCIe bandwidth should not be a problem, or in the very least it will not be with PCIe 2.0 boards. I would wonder about how much satuation Crossfire+GPU physics in addition to the already loaded RAM/CPU/Audio/disks would cause to the northbridge? Even though the southbridge handles some things like disks and audio it still must be routed through the northbridge...

The stock market didn't seem to take this bait at all, with AMD loosing even more than Intel despite Intel being investigated by the EU (with a potentail 2.5 bn € fine).
