Hector Ruiz cuenta la verdad de Barcelona
Atraso de 6 meses.

En una entrevista hecha a el actual CEO de AMD Don Hector Ruiz, el ha comentado los problemas que AMD tuvo en la producción de este nuevo procesador, según sus propias palabras el CPU estaría atrasado 6 meses según lo planeado, por suerte Hector nos confirmo que un CPU basado en Barcelona o sea un Phenom estará disponible a finales del 2007.

It's awfully complicated. We're doing something that nobody has ever done. As strong as our competitor is, they have not done a quad core on a chip (four chip cores, or brains, laid out on a single piece of silicon instead of on two pieces attached together). . . . Every time we ran into a gotcha (or technical glitch), it created a six-week or so hole in the schedule as we went back and fixed it. We hoped we wouldn't get many of those, but in the Barcelona case, we got more than we thought. By the time we got through fixing them all, we were six months-plus late from where we originally wanted to be.

A desktop version of their quad-core chip, code named Phenom, is due to launch before the end of 2007.

Traducción:

"Es muy complicado. Estamos haciendo algo que nadie ha hecho antes. Incluso nuestro fuerte competidor, no ha logrado hacerlo ellos implementaron 2 dual cores unidos… Cada vez que nos encontrábamos con un problema técnico nos retrasaba 6 semanas ya que teníamos que que volver atrás y solucionar el problema. esperábamos no encontrarnos con muchas dificultades técnicas, pero en el caso de Barcelona no fue así y una vez sumados todos los inconvenientes ya estábamos 6 meses o mas atrasados."

Lo que no dice es que en medio hubo un proyecto de micro que fracasó completamente, y por eso tanta demora para empezar a desarrollar Barcelona.

Buen aporte

What happened after K8?

As we're talking about names, there was a project after the K8 that for various reasons wasn't called K9. Undoubtedly there was an internal name, but for now we'll just call it the first planned successor to the K8. The successor to the K8 was originally scrapped, but the question is how far into its development was AMD before the plug was pulled? According to Phil Hester, the project after K8 was in its concept phase when it was canceled – approximately 6 months of time were invested into the project.

So what was the reason for pulling the plug? Apparently the design was massively parallel, designed for heavily multithreaded applications. AMD overestimated the transition to multithreaded applications and made significant sacrifices to single threaded performance with this design. Just as the clock speed race resulted in Intel running straight into a power wall, AMD's massively multithreaded design also ran into power consumption issues. The chip would have tremendous power consumption, largely wasted, given its focus on highly parallel workloads.

The nail in the coffin of AMD's ill fated project was its support for FB-DIMMs. AMD quickly realized that Fully Buffered DIMM was not going to come down in cost quickly enough in the near term to tie its next microprocessor design to it. AMD eventually settled on unbuffered and registered DDR2 instead of FBD.

Without a doubt, AMD made the right decisions with scrapping this project, but it sounds like AMD lost about half a year doing the project. Given that the first K8 was introduced back in 2003, one canceled project doesn't explain why we're here in 2007 with no significant update to the K8's micro-architecture. We couldn't get a straight answer from AMD as to why Barcelona didn't come earlier, but there are a number of possibilities that we have to consider.

Sip eso lo vi pero no lo puse por que no me parecio muy importante
