AMD's Chip Roadmaps: Beyond Barcelona
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Advanced Micro Devices is finally on the verge of delivering its quad-core "Barcelona" Rev F Opteron processors. AMD will be making the announcement in Silicon Valley on September 10, bringing its workstation and server processors more in line in terms of performance with Intel's quad-core Xeon family of processors.

The X Factor: Economic Recession Is the IT Innovator's Ally
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

With the private equity markets drying up and the stock markets suffering from a bad case of jitters thanks to a financial crisis brought about by the writing of heaven knows how many bad home mortgages in the world, it is natural enough for everyone in the working world, as well as those who are retired, to be worried about economic recession.
