Default New Intel stuff

Last night I attended an Intel Retail Edge event and learned 2 things I though some of you might like to know, if you don't know them already.

1) by the beginning of Q2 next year, Intel will have 32nm technology in their processors

2) by the end of this year, they will have a quad core extreme running at either 3.2 or 3.6GH (can't remember exactly which, but I'm more willing to bet 3.2) with 12mb of L2 Cache!

exactly right arent programs just about learning to utilise dual core CPU's.

im all for faster and better processors but i just cant see software being able to use the new techology


like my P 4 3.4 GHZ with 2 GB kingston RAM and 7100GS runs 17 second lifes.
my m8's is C2D e6320 with 2 GB kingston RAM adn 7300 LE can run 9 second lifes ?????

i would say majority of software cant use dual cores yet

Sounds like the in 100 years thread is coming alive lol. I only wish they wouldn't go so fast, I wanted to get a quad core when they dropped price, isn't that in a few days? But now I want to wait for this new stuff

die shrinks and architectural changes....software already supports it. It's the extra processing units that software doesn't support yet since it needs to be recoded.
