Andatech Sits Down with Barcelona

Three times a day I think about coffee, and two times a day I think about dropping a Barcelona into my am2 board and watching my computer do something really fast.

Point by point inspection of the Barcelona chip, and what it's got under the hood. I haven't finished reading it, and I only want people to respond who know what they're talking about (thus, dragon sprayer, you are excluded from responding).
I searched the forums for this, and didn't find it.
