AMDs Deneb holds promise - quite the overclocker?!

Sources suggesting a solid overclocker

With AMDs Deneb line of processors not far away, early reports are beginning to trickle in that it's going to be quite the turn-a-round chip for AMD, as will Shanghai. Though nothing is confirmed as yet, Nordic Hardware relays some promising characteristics of the new chips besides the die-shrink, including their overclockability and 15 to 20% faster clock per clock speeds when compared to the disaster that was Barcelona.


AMDs Deneb is looking mighty promising

while back we reported on a recent interview with AMD General Manager of AMD's Server and Workstation chip business, Pat Patla, where he claimed that Shanghai is much more than a mere die-shrink and that it is 20% faster than Barcelona clock per clock. We've been told by a second source that 20% may be a bit much, but that there is an IPC boost to expect, but closer to 15% than 20. In either case it's just a nice boost. This is applies for Deneb as well we've been told.
