i thought the 512kb L2 rimour was disolved a while ago,
i am wonder if AMD will change their formula for determining the "PR" with Barton, because of the additional cache... i beleive the current formula is 1.5*clockspeed - 500
well... since voice recognition seems to work about 60% of the time, and babelfish french-english is pretty good, say about 70%... you might be able to get the "gist" of what they are saying, but then, who knows about french voice recognition? :smile: i think it would make a very interesting read... judging from some of the translations babelfish has given me...
well... since the identification of voice seems to function about 60% of time, and the French-English babelfish is very good, word about 70%... could you be able to obtain the "gist" of what they say, but then, that the identification of French voice knows? I think that it would make... judge read very interesting from some of the translations that the babelfish gave me...
Or, you can just run things through bablefish converting them from english to french to english again from this board and see what happens <See above text :wink: >

I hope this works well for AMD, this would give them an upper hand for Q3, right in time for the Hammer in Q4 or '03 Q1. Here's to see how they manage to squeeze Barton in those tight dates!
Some folks have suggested that Barton may be the version of the chip produced by UMC, ramping up late this year. That would give AMD the headroom they need to get Hammer going well, yet still produce ample Athlons.

AMD had already sent out indications that SOI for Athlon (Barton) was no longer needed as Hammer was moving along better than expected. It looks like they simply resurrected the "Barton" name to bow to their critics (Athlon supporters included) and include 512kB L2 cache on the T-Bred core.
I thought a thought, but the thought I thought wasn't the thought I thought I had thought.
How do you figure they will be able to produce ample Athlons? The last article that I read regarding AMD's roadmap mentioned that if they stuck to producing Barton they would increase the likelihood of running into production problems (can't remember where I read it). AMD would have to split their production between Barton, Thoroughbred, XPs, mobile XPs, and then both Hammer lines.
I am starting to think that the Tbred is on purpose, slow in production in order to maintain Barton's integrity and production numbers. Thus low Tbred chip yeilds but high Barton ones, to end the Athlon with big reserves to rake some money before closing the die forever.
