Rev F is scheduled to be available in the third quarter of this year. Visitors of Linux World are first to actually see the company demo its virtualization technology previously code-named “Pacifica” and now called “AMD-v.” The demo at the tradeshow has simply purpose to show the virtualization feature and not possible performance gains the dual-core Rev F CPUs will bring.
