AMD Says Quad-Core by Christmas

AMD showed off some of its Quad-Core CPUs, showing single socket and dual-socket configurations. This is the first time that AMD has shown off a computer with 8-cores in it.

The barcelona server chips will hit July or August with the desktop part later this year.

AMD showed off these chips by encoding a 1080p movie in h.264 at near real-time.

The machines were also running with Radeon HD 2900XT cards which will be launching May 14th.
