AMD trails Intel but is hoping to make up some ground with the release of the Shanghai chip.

It is seen by experts as a complete refresh or re-launch of their Barcelona Opteron chip.

It is the first 45-nanometer processor chip from AMD and is far faster than the Barcelona chip, 35% faster to be exact.

Whether or not this will be enough to give AMD a big sales boost remains to be seen.
