Submission + - AMD claims the Barcelona = 170% faster than Xeon! (techarp.com)

crazyeyes writes: "Less than two weeks before Barcelona is launched, we had the opportunity to talk to the guy who's supposed to make it a big financial success — John Freude, AMD's Worldwide Business Development Manager for Server/Workstation Products.

John sure had some interesting numbers to tell us, as well as some updates on Phenom and even Budapest. Check out these updates from AMD. There will be more to come. Here's a quote from the editorial :-

"Because they are under NDA, he cannot reveal the actual results, but he gave us some interesting indications of how the Barcelona will eventually fare against an equivalent Intel processor.

— 20-30% better performance overall
— 170% better performance in some benchmarks

More importantly, he says, the Quad-Core Opteron (Barcelona) will offer 45-85% better performance than current dual-core Opteron processors at the same power consumption and thermal dissipation. Intel quad-core processors, on the other hand, only offer 30-35% better performance (11% in floating point) than their dual-core processors with a 23-25% increase in power consumption and thermal dissipation."
