Some info on the new Quad core from AMD:
AMD has announced the completion of the design, or tape-out, of its native Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors. Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors represent another concrete example of the benefits from AMD’s overarching strategy to introduce new technologies with minimal customer disruption for maximum value. AMD plans to deliver to customers in mid-2007 native Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors that incorporate four processor cores on a single die of silicon.
AMD has been falling behind arch-rival, Intel in the quad-core race, even though the 4x4 initiative was originally an AMD project. Intel's quad-core offering, based on the popular Core 2 Duo chip, has been brought forward and is now expected to launch in Q4 2006 rather than the initially announced, mid 2007. In order to alleviate the pressure on AMD the company has announced plans to ...demonstrate our next generation microprocessor core in a native quad-core implementation before the end of the year, said Dirk Meyer, AMD’s president and CEO in a conference call.
AMD also confirmed that its quad-core chip is code-named Deerhound and will be intended for socket F infrastructure and will have shared level-two cache along with a dual-channel registered DDR2 memory controller. The new chip will utilize the new K8L design, which will introduce several improvements.
Tech is where you'll find me..

I'm sure that Intel is working on the same thing.
Hmmmmmm.... Isn't Opteron their sever chip?
yeah intel i doing the same thing... you can get the new apple power mac with quad core...
vikke-vikingyeah intel i doing the same thing... you can get the new apple power mac with quad core...
mac has a quad core out? i got to lok in to that. o well intel ahs had one for some time did intel and IBM make the Xbox 360 core that is a tri core with hpyer threaded so we know there is a 3 4 should not be that much harder.
ps. my 200th post
those are all "two" 64-bit Dual-Core Intel Xeon so it si realy a dual processor each Dual-Core Intel Xeon so it is not a true "quad Core"

As long as AMD gets back on top above Intel I'm fine.;)
hehe i LOVE INTEL!

But do you really need 4 cores? :rolleyes: I think it's getting to a point where we're advancing technologies faster than we can utilize them. I like to call it the age of self-ass-kicking.

Hehe, I think that age already came when Nvidia released the FX series. FYI: I'm for Nvidia, I'm just stating the fact on how crappy that FX video cards were.
