quote: ...new architecture from Intel again, which initially looks to eliminate the last of Amd's technical superiorities, like IMC
quote: Yes the core 2 is a superior design than the K8, but if you were able to compare 2 CPUs with equal cache size at the same clock speed i believe that Intel would win in integer performance for only say 10%, and be almost equal in most floating point benchs, because AMD hypertransport platform is superior.
quote: I believe that HT3.0, Direct connect 2.0, will be superior to CSI when CSI arrives.
quote: Based on what? Your AMD fanaticism?
quote: Lots of things have been around for 5 years.. that are far from immune to being leap-frogged by the competition.
quote: And yes.. only in 4S+ servers and workstations is HyperTransport a truly soar-away superior architecture.
