Comment: Re:Not native Quad core (Score 2, Informative) 191

by OrangePeril (#16837704) Attached to: Intel Takes Quad Core To the Desktop
True, it is not native quad core. However AMD's first venture into quad-core will not be native either. In an effort to catch up to Intel, they will also be releasing a quad-core processor thats "taped together" as Intel's is.

I recently met with an Intel rep and they are very much pushing their new core architecture. Quad-core this year, Octo-core next.. Core count is the next clock speed. However one of it matters until the software manufacturers can take advantage of it, and very few server applications can at this point, let alone games.
