    Wow, nice little bit of marketing there. I think I may actually tune into it.

    Well, it won't hurt to tune in, most have been asking AMD to present more than a paper trail....this is a decent beginning.
    Thanks malware for bringing this to my attention, I would have missed the dam thing....

    The pressure is on now....will this be a cartoon presentation of what could be or a national geographic presentation of what it is........watch the dam thing be postponed....:wtf:

    I cant believe that the Barcelona will be such a hit...First benchmarks by AMD indicate that it wins in only 50% of the tests the Core 2 Duo and the second wins in the rest 50% of the tests.
    Not to mention that half of AMDs lead staff has resigned...
    Time will tell however :)

    Eurgh just release the god damn processors already. Stop with the paper releases / conferences to say you will release the processors and release them.
