quote: ext time you wanna talk about TRUE server processors, do your homework.
quote: The only TRUE server processor for multi processor systems
quote: Merom = 667
Conroe = 1066
Woodcrest = 1333 (Dual Independent Bus)
quote: As far as I've seen, Woodcrest isn't intended for the 975 chipset and has been said by Intel to be 1333
quote: go to a quad socket server, and AMD will likely still have a 40%+ performance advantage.
quote: Woodcrest CPUs WILL NOT share FSB
quote: t takes time for people to change their minds.
quote: You can't simply ignore the fact that people "want" to buy AMD-based servers right now, even if Intel had a superior product. It takes time for people to change their minds
quote: They likely wouldn't be as cheap in terms of cost with an AMD chip in them
quote: By the way, cool your jets, I was just kiddin about the fanboy thing
quote: There's no reason to assume they'll be able to do that
quote: AMD doesn't have the capacity Dell requires
quote: From a developers perspective, K8L looks more interesting and usable than Woodcrest.
quote: If these are correct, not very good source of information - full of bad rumers - but if correct. A dual 3Ghz Woodcrest would like be faster than a 4 Cpu AMD server chip
quote: Intel will be like "See Dell sells AMD. We are not a monoloply"
quote: And with low demand for Turion, it is also a nobody there
quote: more factories = higher yield for higher end processors = all processors get cheaper from more higher end sales...
quote: As for which one is more powerfull, well AMD is more powerful now - but Woodcrest is likely to be a lot more powerfull.
quote: I am pretty sure that a 3Ghz dual Woodcrest will be top dog until atleast 2007 when the Quad cores come out
quote: This is likely being done for making the Legal Anti-Trust people happy - so that AMD can be an option in some markets
quote: As for which one is more powerfull, well AMD is more powerful now - but Woodcrest is likely to be a lot more powerfull
quote: And AMD still won't have enough capacity to supply the whole Dell.
quote: And AMD still won't have enough capacity to supply the whole Dell
quote: I almost cried when I read the title. This will be the story I will tell my grand children when I'm old. We are now in a new era; this is peace after the long war. AMD, my nation, won.
quote: Probably the guys at Dell know some things we don't. Currently I see AMD cornered badly. There is no single reason to buy AMD. Even their price is very high because of their low manufacturing capacity.
quote: could be linked to Intel's anti-trust case against AMD.
quote: Where is the economic sense in doing so?
