AMD AMD Promises 2.5GHz Quad-Core Microprocessors in December

Advanced Micro Devices said during the formal unveiling of its quad-core server microprocessors that it would introduce 25% faster versions of the chip in about two months time.

The move will allow the world’s second largest chipmaker not only to improve performance for servers, but also to present a competitive solution for desktops.

Randy Allen, corporate vice president of server and workstation division at AMD, said during the quad-core AMD Opteron launch conference that while initially AMD’s chips with four processing engines work only at up to 2.0GHz clock-speed, in December the company will be in position to offer 2.5GHz chips. But 25% speed increase will bring only up to 15% performance improvement, said Mr. Allen.

“AMD today shows the path to better performing design for demanding data center requirements, again. In fact, here is a proof to you of our 2.50GHz [quad-core] processor that is going to be available in December and what it is going to deliver to the market. […] This chart shows incremental performance that is going to be delivered on top of that existing [2.0GHz] product: you can see 15% performance benefit, 15% performance increase that will be delivered [by] our 2.50GHz product,” said Randy Allen.

In addition to clock-speed increase of server processors late this year, the chipmaker also promised to deliver the first AMD Phenom processors for desktops in December, though, remained tight-lipped regarding their working frequencies and other peculiarities.
