September 10, 2007 is a big day for AMD, however. Today is the day AMD is officially taking the wraps of their native quad-core Barcelona-based Opteron processors. While the Barcelona core does still borrow heavily from their last-gen processors, it incorporates a number of enhancements for increased performance and power efficiency.
