AMD is certainly on a roll. The confidence from Hector Ruiz leaving combined with the Shanghai development going faster than expected, have embiggened AMD employees. Mass production of Shanghai processors are well under way and we’ve been told that AMD is shipping out this month, and is doing everything it can to break onto the market before Intel does. The first Shanghai model is said to operate at 2.7GHz and work within the 95W envelope. This one should be out before the end of the month. A few weeks before Intel launches Nehalem.
