good stuff mate, helped me alot
Why no socket 939 Dual Cores? I heard that current motherboards could handle Dual Core, yet AMD aren't releasing any 939 dual cores.
have a look at Toledo.
Orleans etc are DDRII part
thanks for posting that
Missed that... , thought it was just a 90nm version of FX's. Any estimates on prices yet?
I'll beleave it when amd post it on there site,,,
And Look man, theres a dual core fx with dual cores on 939 on that list
If that was in reference to AMD Dual Core CPU's on current Socket 939 motherboards check out one of Anandtech's review of CES 2005. It's at the bottom of the page.
i was more in reffrance to the new socket,
/me wishes AMD release a few (3) new ATHLON XP 512k 400FSB processors such as 1 each at 2.5GHZ, 2.8GHZ and 3.2GHZ so my mobo will last a bit more longer.
for what a 2.8ghz Axp would cost if they ever made it (will never happen buddy) you could get a new A64 motherboard and a 3200+ which would murder any such cpu, Also the fact that'd pritty much hit the wall for that tech, If they where to keep going it'd be a core redisgn anyway meaning new mobo, so BLAH
Anyone reckon that AMD will break the 3ghz+ clock speed by mid 2006?. But 2.8ghz seems a
DDR2, Dual-Core Orleans looks good , but would be a bit expensive. But still thats in 2006, prices would probably be different when it comes around, since A64 would be well and truley out in the public and PC manufactures like Compaq, Dell ect. would be using them in thier Desktop systems(?)
Dual CPU, Dual-Core Mobos
As you may have heard, even Intel is moving away from raw MHz speed to indicate how "fast" CPUs are. Under certain conditions an Athlon 64 at just 2.2 GHz can beat an Athlon XP at as much as 2.9 GHz (for example) because the architecture of Athlon 64 is superior and does more work per clock cycle.
So even at lower MHz speeds, new generation of CPUs are a lot faster so they're "better" even if they can't clock to 3 GHz....
Finally we're seeing more dual-channel memory access from AMD. As beneficial as hypertransport is, the single channel memory was really holding the bandwidth back in the memory department.
Presidio and pacifica security technologies? Interesting...
lol yeah and to a stupid naming system that gives an even lesser indication of cpu speed.
toledo looks the most interesting thing before 2006. I think the 90nm steppings will keep getting better for a while yet too
Just out of curiosity...how is AMD adding the SSE3 optimisations? Aren't they patented to Intel, and how did they manage to actually do this as well?
Socket 939/940 has dual channel ram
Im pretty sure its an open standard, they already have sse and sse2
AMD and Intel have a cross patent agreement, there are some clauses but basically AMD and Intel actually semi cooperate on things like this.
Hence why AMD has MMX, SSE, SSE2 and intel has 64bit A64 style technology.
SSE3 will basically be included in the microcode for the CPU, and the SSE3 instructions will generally be executed by comparible 3Dnow! operations. They will most likely tweak things a bit to get all the SSE3 stuff working well enough, not all of them have directly comparible 3Dnow! instructions.
Is this based on the financial calender or normal calendar?
