    "AMD Has Already Got Barton Samples! Mobile Hammer Next Year
    Posted 6/07/02 at 6:29 pm by Gavric

    AMD has been quite successful with desktop computers during the last couple of years, which cannot be said about its mobile PCs yet. Nonetheless, it doesn’t mean at all, that AMD has no plans for expansion to this market. According to Sunnywale Company representatives reports, their products will be used in all the range of notebooks: from ultra-portative to full-size computers.

    At the moment AMD has already got Barton processor samples (Athlon XP, 0.13 micron, 512 KB L2), which have been shown at Computex 2002 by the company’s partners according to TheInquirer. A little bit later processors with the same core, but with a lower voltage, for mobile PCs will be presented.

    As Barton will appear only after Intel lets out the next 3 GHz Pentium 4, AMD will have to prove again that performance and physical clock-rate have very little in common. In particular, the company will try to convince software developers to optimize their applications for using 3Dnow!. The results of the tests in digital media environment were presented at the show, including Windows Media encoder, where Pentium4 works traditionally a little faster, but optimized for AMD processors, according to them, Athlon XP worked faster than its opponent. If such software appears on the market, AMD will have another joker, because the company from Santa-Clara will loose it.

    From the information, taken from private conversations, it becomes clear, that Hammer mobile processors will appear approximately by the middle of the next year. While the tech process has the tendency to become thinner, more perfect micro-processor versions are to be expected."
