That makes no sense. There are plenty of independent experts who could offer analysis given a die photo, die size information, and samples to attempt to measure power and o/c-ability. Why not provide it like they have in the past?

Ali, TGP, Your discussion turned into pure OT. So please discontinue the discussion.

Smooth, 20 posts OT before I can call to stop?! You're crazy ;).

Regards,

Rink

Good thing too. You are 2X the speed limit... That's a felony in some states.

I didn't really expect anything more than an announcement. Parts should start flooding us soon so when they are actually tested we can examine your theory that 65nm is broken in more detail ;-). Here's a WAG from me, they will overclock slighty more than 90nm parts, say 3.2-3.3 GHz. I also like the technical fact that SiGe is in the first stepping.

Re: OMG, if that is true, AMD is done like dinner.

On the other hand this would put AMD's simulated benchmarks in a somewhat more positive light if they were simulations at 2.5GHz instead of 2.9GHz. A 2.9GHz Barcelona barely outperforming a 2.67GHz Clovertown in the online transaction benchmark would look really poor, where a 2.5GHz Barcelona at least indicates a slight clock-for-clock performance edge over Clovertown/Kentsfield.

Not sure how you are still posting here, but:

I think the fact that SiGe is included is a negative, because I would've expected improvement from adding it in the future. I was quite surprised to find that it was already in.

This together with the HKEPC Barcelona top clock of 2.5GHz says something is quite wrong, IMO.

re: Half baked...

It's not half baked. This "Seal of Approval" comes out ONE DAY after the 65nm announcement with

1. No apparent availability
2. Yielding maybe equal (or better) to 90nm
3. Late, very late
4. Same or less performance
5. WAYYY lower performance than the closest competitor

Name some reasons why you think it's not "paid for".

Could I ask you to take content-free OT posts like this to the OT board, or PM me?

I am not 2X anything, as there is currently no "speed limit".

There is that, but given that those simulated benchmarks were cherry-picked, I imagine this does not bode well for other benchmarks, particularly integer stuff. Just one rumor site making the claim at this point, I guess.
