THE FIRST AMD chips using the Barcelona core will be released on September 10th, with the first chips to surface being a 1.9GHz 2348 and a 2GHz 2350.

Other chips will follow in October of this year although a 2354, which is a 2.2GHz microprocessor, is likely to be available in August through channel distribution.

Sources close to AMD's plans in Taiwan tell the INQ that AMD hopes to get 2.5GHz bins out of Barcelona, although dates for such beasts are not yet available.

What we do have now is a projected chart for the chips, which are double socket quad cores with 64K x 4 L1 cache, 512K x 4 L2 cache, so 2MB shared cache, and when you buy them in 1000s.
