Default Re: AMD is in the soup, again

Good read. That's not exactly what AMD needs right now.
So to my understanding it kinda like (in a incorrect comparison) Intel's Hyper threading technology.
It shows itself to be 8 cores in windows but is in fact advertised to be 4 cores.

Default Re: AMD is in the soup, again

well then, that probably goes some way to showing why "8 Core" AMD chips struggle to stack up with Quad core Intels that have a higher instructions per clock count - because they actually have the same number of functional cores but the Intel options are 'faster'

That's just my really naive way of looking at it, waiting for someone to come along and correct me :P

I heard something about his earlier in the week. I always wondered if this was possible and why Intel never made an 8 Core CPU. Obviously its not yet possible for desktops & laptops..

One of the reasons Intel hasn't made an 8 core is as yet it hasn't been sufficiently demonstrated there are any programs that can utilize 8 cores anyway.

They actually have made 8 core CPU's. some Xeons and i7 extremes.

Looking at price points it is easy to see why I missed those, thanks!

Default Re: AMD is in the soup, again

There are consumer 8-core and 6-core CPUs as well; the i7-5960X (8-core, 16 thread), and the i7-5920k and i7-5820k (both 6-core 12 thread)

The latter (5820k) is about the same price as an i7-6700k when last I checked
