    It turns out that AMD has been producing Barcelona wafers for a while now. We thought you'd be very interested in the pictures that The Inquirer got for everyone that couldn't catch a plane to CeBIT in Germany.

    This is how a CPU starts off, there is a slab of pure silicon that is first "made into a processor mosaic". Then broken apart, thats a seperate CPU.

    Am I the only one that noticed it says "Greyhound Quad Core 65nm" ?
    Are they changing the name from "Barcelona" to "Greyhound" ?

    Methinks that Barcelona is the dual core version, and Greyhound is the quad core version.
