The simultaneous posting of price cuts for existing Opteron processors and benchmark results for new Opteron processors has PC World wondering if the next wave of AMD server chips is coming soon. Personally, I couldn’t care less. But at the end of the piece is
AMD will release the desktop version of the Opteron, the Athlon64 chip, on September 23.
September 23 is Springsteen’s birthday. Is it even possible that’s nothing more than a wild coincidence?
I think so.
