Intel's Barcelona Squeeze
Lehman Brothers suggests that Intel may be able to come up with a low-power 3GHz/80W chip to checkmate AMD

Lehman Brothers has been sifting through the Penryn rumors and suggests that Intel may be able to come up with a low-power 3GHz/80W chip to checkmate AMD's attempts to field what may be a 2.5GHz/75W Barcelona penciled in for December.

AMD finally launched Barcelona, its first quad-core chip, the save-the-company device that proved harder to build than AMD thought it would, costing it critical quarters in the marketplace, months that have paid off nicely for AMD's giant rival, Intel, which has been selling quads since November.

AMD lost time - 12 points of market share - and close to $2 billion because it had its heart set on producing a true x86 quad on a single die, not two dual-cores squished together like Intel makes. The time it took has made AMD rue it didn't take Intel's approach.
