Default Re: AMD 4x4? K8L? Octal Core? Tech talk...

Who cares about multi core!!!!! That's what AMD says. They're headed in a whole new direction:

AMD outlines plans for future processors
http://techreport.com/onearticle.x/11438

For those too lazy to click on that link, here's a summary.

AMD has a new plan for processors over the coming years. Intel may be counting on cramming 'tens to hundreds' of cores in future CPUs , but AMD thinks the core race is just a repeat of the MHz race that took place a few years ago. Instead, AMD is counting on Accelerated Processing Units, chips that mix and match general purpose CPU cores with dedicated application processors for graphics and other tasks.

In the meantime, AMD is cooking up some new desktop and mobile processors that it hopes will give Intel a run for its money.
