AMD announced today that it will host a live dual-core duel event in Singapore on December 6. This latest challenge to Intel was issued yesterday in an advertisement in Digital Life of The Straits Times. This challenge is a follow-on to the original challenge issued to Intel on August 23. AMD’s proposed dual-core duel would be a live, public performance evaluation between server platforms based on the highest-performing Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ 800 Series or 200 Series processors and the corresponding Intel x86 server processors that are commercially available in volume. Should Intel accept AMD’s challenge, the duel would take place on December 6 at 1.30pm at The Ritz Carlton Hotel with testing conducted by a neutral, third-party testing lab. Testing would be done using industry-standard server benchmarks most relevant to customers today such as SPECjbb® and other independent benchmarks from SPEC.org. Measurement on energy consumption would also be conducted.
