Default 8 core processor?

http://www.apple.com/macpro/
didn't really pay any attention how long has the 8 core been out?

and by 2010 32 core processors http://uk.gizmodo.com/2006/07/10/int...ocessor_b.html

i jus cnt imagine it lol its only like 3 years time plus a year delay time as expected lol and then another 1 - 3 years to become affordable so i reckon bout 7 years and ill be planning my 32 core computer with 16GB RAM with 10 Tb of hardrive space and the new windows lol

ahhhh the future

Supposedly Intel's working on a prototype 80 core, and even a 100 core processor. I'd like to see something that actually makes full use of that. I'm sure something will come along eventually, probably one program that utilizes 100 cores, just so they can say it can be used for something.

edit: Getting back on topic , looks like it's just 2 quad-cores running together. And those aren't even true quads, right? So it's like 4 dual-cores working together.

That's from Sun microsystems, those are server CPUs, you will never see those on a desktop, as for Barcelona making a come back... Yes, it definitely will make a come back and take back lost ground when Core 2 came out. Barcelona will easily over take the Kentsfields right now and the Penryn die shrink might put up a fight, but I'm confident in AMDs innovations. Nehalem will be featuring the 8 cores mentioned in the first post, which will also feature 45nm, this won't be coming out for a while though, so until then, AMD has time to get back a few customers. The 8-core system in the first post isn't really 8-cores at all anyway, it's just two Kentsfields in a system.

the only use for something that fast is gaming,they should push for smaller.

no they could use 80 for anything in the future, rendering massive screens with high resolutions (control centers), rendering 3d graphics for public presentations (and kick ass games , digital theaters, its all coming, ive seen it all on the science channel, they are developing it all and now that an 80core processor is beginning to be thought of, the options and applications are endless, i believe each core would run at 3.6ghz i think is what i saw in an article i read about it a month ago, which is approx. 288ghz total... ya thats kinda fast...

To do.. what?... I surely don't have any applications that require servers, they're for businesses, and they are very pricey.

That Mac is just two quad core processors, not an eight core processor.

Ah, still when they have 80 that will be very impressive.

That is just 2 quad cores...

LMFAO click graphics look at the "top of the line graphics card" i really hope people dont fall for that BS

you cant go above 80% cpu usage with a SINGLE quad core unless your like ripping 2 dvd's playing FEAR and running a virus scan and vista all at once NO WAY will a 8 core cpu will be practial OTHER than a server.

its just not practical because no single system can burn that much cpu power. besides your performance will be the same at 80% as it will at 5% cpu usage. less than 100% cpu usage means there is NO wait time for threads reqeusteing processing.

besides there is NO RAM fast enough to supply the cpu's cache with so many things to push it farth enough to become worth it. ALSO the MAC OS doesnt even come close to cpu usage as windows thats why a 400mhz G4 was as good as a entry level dell in things like opening up documents

i sort of agree with you for now but in the future it will be well worth it coz program developers will make their programs so they r able to use more cpu coz once they know the power is out there its obviously gonna be used and then the RAM issue well again for now i agree but if they can create new processors im just thinkin they can do the same with RAM

that may be only 2 quad's but intel does expect an Oct-core out by feb of next year, with a release set for the 16-core.
