Dates on "Barton" or "Clawhammer"?

I was wondering if anyone has heard any dates, rumors or not, of when the AMD Barton and Clawhammer chips are to be released? All I have heard is the Barton in the third quarter of this year and the Clawhammer in the fourth quarter of this year. I haven't heard any specific dates though.

  2. releasing the new core, and it being actually available in the market is a different matter. i don`t see any t-breds yet. i`d love to get one though.

    hammers will probably be the mainstream of the amd in 2004 i think(just my opinion)

    i really don`t care for hammer, all i want is cheaper XPs. =)

    Be nice.
  3. There are plenty of T-breds on the market, they are just 99% 2200+ procs. AMD is clearing the channel of Palominos before offering quantities of backfilled T-breds for sale. This doesn't help the OCers that are waiting for the T-bred 1800+ though.

    Barton is due August - Sept. AMD will probably release a 2300+ or 2400+ T-bred before Barton ships, but maybe not if the ramping problems with T-bred continue. AMD is not putting extra resources on either proc due to the Hammer.

    Hammer Athlon Ultra/64? is due by Christmas with the Opteron DP and MP following in 2003. It was originaly slated for August, but has slipped some.

    If the thought I thought I thought had been the thought I thought, I wouldn't have thought so much.

    Latest rumor has them coming out in November/December.

    AMD said in a press confrence at least a month ago that the Hammer will be released in December, and should be available on the market in January... so it could be even longer.
