Submission + - AMD undercuts Intel with six-core Phenom IIs (techreport.com) 1

EconolineCrush writes: As Slashdot readers are no doubt aware, Intel's latest "Gulftown" Core i7-980X is an absolute beast of a CPU. But its six cores don't come cheap; the 980X sells for over a grand, which is more than it would cost to build an entire system based on one of AMD's new six-core CPUs. The Phenom II X6 line starts at just $200 and includes a new Turbo capability that can opportunistically raise the clock speed of up to three cores when the others are idle. Although not as fast as the 980X, the the new X6s are quick enough to offer compelling value versus even like-priced Intel CPUs. And the kicker: the X6s will work in a good number of older Socket AM2+ and AM3 motherboards with only a BIOS update.

Submission + - Google deploys new sidebar in results page (blogspot.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Starting yesterday, the Google search results webpage features a new sidebar. The Official Google Blog claims that "[t]he new design refreshes and streamlines the look, feel and functionality of Google, making it easier to pinpoint what you’re looking for", and explains that "[t]he top section of the new left-hand panel builds on Universal Search by suggesting the most relevant genres of results for your query and letting you seamlessly switch to these different types of results". Has Google at last abandoned its KISS attitude to web design? Currently there is no option to turn off the new sidebar, although a quick Google search shows that many people are looking for it.
Beyond the new search bar, Google also rolled out Google Squared, which presents search results in tabular form.
