AMD (AMD) can’t get a break on the launch of its new quad-core chip, the Barcelona. The day of its release, Intel (INTC) upped its revenue forecast for the quarter, overshadowing the AMD announcment.
Yesterday, Lehman Brothers came out with a report saying that Intel "plans an aggressive move to accelerate the processor speeds of its coming Penryn-class processors." The new product will go right up against the Barcelona. As Lehman said, that will keep up the pressure on AMD.
