SO just because that thing might be better, doesn't mean people are going to use it. I mean, what average computer person (that makes up probobly 60% of the computer-using population; and they believe computers are bred for iPods and movies) is going to use a 64 bit dual core Pentium. Oh yes, what is this "65nm" thign anyways??? Never heard of it.
I'll keep out the Linux V Windows debates. People always like to uprise against the successful. If you haven't already read my reply to one of your past posts regarding Linux, read it here http://www.computerforums.org/showpo...8&postcount=17

At least he stated a reason why the Yonah core might 'win'. It's dual core. 65nm is the manufacturing process. Its the size each transistor is on the CPU. 65nm is 6.5x10^-8 meters. Very small. The smaller the Manufacturing method, the lower the voltage needed, hence the lower the relative heat output. It also means that more CPU dies can be made in a wafer during manufacturing that leads so cheaper chips.

I'm not a blind Linux fanboy, and I don't hate Microsoft, did I say I did?

4 CPU's will use up your ram because the ram is used in applications, and if you have 4 processors running different programs, the ram has to work with the processor. How can it effectively distribute itself amongst 4 processors and programs?? It can't. At least, not at a very good rate.

And we all know that those chips aren't going to be cheap.

P.S What the hell is a waffer!?

how do you know it wont be cheap? moving to the 65nm platform will make them cheaper. Because you can make more chips from a single wafer. A wafer is a giant circle of silicon that is used in semi conductors. They are roughly 200mm in diameter.

There's a difference. I said that it'll own, not win. The winner hasn't been determined, but I just said that it'll own. Owning doesn't mean it'll win, but it'll sure kick ass.

but imagine AMD64 X2's on the 65nm process. mmmmm yummy

They will be expensive, TRUST ME.

It's Intel man.

Keep in mind that this is a mobile processor we're talking about. Mobile processors are always more expensive. However, the new 65nm process WILL allow prices to go down, because they can make more chips per wafer.

Don't make any assumptions that just because it's Intel, it automatically means that it will be expensive.

The AMD 65nm processors will be almost the same price as the processors now.

Take into account intel dings you on the price to pay for all their fancy advertising, brainwashing and monopolising.
