AMD "AMD described its forthcoming quad-core processor, codenamed Barcelona, in a session at today's Microprocessor Forum. Details of the new microarchitecture on which the processor is based (codenamed K8L) have been known for some time now. Still, the event brought some new info, and here are some highlights that I've culled from some of the reporting on it."

One can already do that today on a single 32-bit CPU running @ 1.5 GhZ. But of course an extra core would be most welcome here.

But for those few minutes it takes to burn a CD, it's not really a problem that one may have to be somewhat relaxed about the use of his/her PC.
