Intel thought that Barcelona is mobile

It was its worst nightmare

We were checking some of our notes from IDF and we found an interesting comment made by Molly Eden, one of the key notebook people at Intel, concerning AMD mobile plans .

Eden had confirmed that Intel feared that Barcelona will be a notebook part, at least its dual core iteration, and worked really hard to make a solution that could fight this. At the end when Intel realized that all AMD has to fight in mobiles is Griffin an updated version of K8 core it realized that AMD doesn't have any chance in 2008 against mobile Penryn.

I guess that AMD definitely need to wake up when it comes to notebooks as this is the company's big chance.
