quote: If AMD had a new core ready to go in six or nine months they would screaming it from the rooftop to counter Conroe hype. The idea is to freeze the market and create FUD about your competitors product.

quote: This is a joke right? Conroe is Intel's attempt to provide a distraction from AMD's upcoming AM2 processors. I wouldn't put too much faith in a lone article on a french news site as proof that AMD is attemping to steal Intel's thunder..... Sorry, you have to try harder next time....
quote: if you could even devise an algorithm that would split a thread onto 2 cores then, we'd have seen this technology on compilers already.
quote: The best way to achieve better multi-core performance is for applications to better multi-threaded in designed. This not only helps with multi( not just dual ) core cpus but also with dual and multi cpu computers.
quote: I think it's less impossible than you think. But it would blur the line between wether or not it's two seperate cores or one core with 'hyperthreading'.
quote: There are already dual core CPUs that share cache.. you just need to set it up so they can share registers, and this could be doable.
quote: For the record, 'branches' in code are much more low-level than flowchart 'branches' in AI. AI would do better by running each 'AI' as a separate thread, and let the CPU's paralellism run as many as possible.
quote: AMD can counter with some kind of marketing campaign touting the energy efficiency of their upcoming 65TDP parts
