What Would You Like In The Next Generation Of Processors?

Ex. Quad-Core; DDR5 Support; Higher Speeds on Stock Cooling etc.

More about : generation processors

better memory addresing and more cache
March 14, 2006 5:29:34 PM

Intel spoke of "hundreds of execution cores". I do not know if that will ever be useful. Software would have to be be broken down and wrote to execute on that many cores. I just have a hard time seeing it being useful.

What would I like to see from the next generation of processors?

Increased upgradability
Increased memory support (upgrading from DDR2 to DDR3 without having to buy a new proc or mobo)
Longer socket life
Less power consumption
Industry standard benchmarking for performance comparisons (ha, that will NOT happen)

A smarter and less flaming group of people that support AMD :wink:
March 15, 2006 12:08:19 AM

SPEED, and inexpensiveness would be nice.

Not everybody here who supports amd is crazy...although a few are.

Also, you wan that in your processor...so you want people in your processor........noobs :roll:

i would like expandable cpu that you can stack :D 
think of the cell processor only you can stack them, cpu running too slow? buy 5 of them and stack them together 8)
March 15, 2006 2:30:25 AM

More registers.
March 15, 2006 2:49:57 AM

a processor that can do the work of a GPU and can do almost anything.
March 15, 2006 3:00:05 AM

Why would you want a CPU to do GPU work?
March 15, 2006 3:10:06 AM

>= 2.0 GHz A64/Conroe dual-core for < $100
March 15, 2006 3:38:34 AM

A non-fanboy cpu!!!! :D 

Ok that not possible but a cpu that is faster than the fx60 or 955 ee with more cache, with the price range of $500-$700.
March 15, 2006 3:51:07 AM

More cores and higher clock speeds!
March 15, 2006 3:55:09 AM

Works double shifts, brings in extra cash flow....

:oops:  . o O (he did say would like or wish)
March 15, 2006 4:07:13 AM

One other thing, more audio and video optimisations. Hmm I guess that's two, shut up!

Yeah, I reckon.

living, self-enhancing chip that physically upgrades via software instruction downloads that end up being pirated so certain people may choose not to pay anything to have the next generation of tech :lol: 

on a more serious note, a completely revamped technology that dumps the use of transistors (be it crossbar latches or whatever), anything that'll get us out of this transistor-size/density race.

Lower sodium..

Less fat..

more fiber..

more calcium..

More silicon tired of this 65nm-90nm diet.. damn I'm staving, and I need a 2nd diet!!

Not to mention I use up 2 tubes of AC5 to get my other minerals..

:oops:  . o O (oh.. parden me.. where's the boys room?)

What do we need more processors for - AMD rulz over Intel and they are the best in the world and dont need to get any better, and a FX-60 will beat a Celeron D any day of the week so why do we need more processors or properly structured sentences, cause AMD can be rearrange to MAD...

Jokes. :p 

Cheaper, faster, better, this is what we get every processor upgrade, to varying degrees.

Oh yeah, something that will actually Run vista, becuase seeing what they want these things to have as minimum system specs, am wondering what they will need to run it properly, like a X2 or a 9** runs XP today.

Does anyone know what the carbon nanotubes' characteristics would be like, e.g. heat output, do they suffer from current leakage?
March 15, 2006 11:46:32 AM

What i would like is Single CPU Chip with Physical Quad-Processer, and those Quad Processers Divided into Quad-Cores Giving us 16X Total Prosessing Power. Yay. and those Fiber Optic Motherboards without Bottlenecks. Yea. and those Carbon Nanotube RAMS and some of those Virtual Electron Processers for my SChool server yea. like 300 Procesers in one CPU chip but. there's no way to read the information yet. but i'd like that. yeah and i'll like more things when the Koreans or the Chinese or anyone Says its been done before and we can Mass produce it. Yay Fantisies
March 15, 2006 12:05:37 PM

I'd be much happier if CPUs stayed as they currently are and someone came up with an affordable solid-state hard disk that was at least 10% the speed of system RAM.

That would rock.

I'd like to see higher cashe, more registers (>32 would be nice), and a risc arcitecture. Alphas so pwned x86s for the longest time.

Here's what I'd like to see:

1. Replaceable chipsets in motherboards (socket them like CPUs) so you can replace the CPU and chipset and still keep the motherboard.
2. Better FPU and integer performance.
3. Cooler operation of CPUs (and GPUs, hard drives, chipsets, etc.) It's nuts how big of a PSU, heatsink, and fans we have use to keep our systems from melting. Laptops have efficient parts, why can't we copy more of their technology for desktop machines? It took YEARS to move CPU frequency scaling from laptops to desktops!
4. More efficient use of the existing processor resources by programs. A lot of programs are written generic i586 while we have SMP systems with at least SSE2. This also means to multithread programs.
5. Four or eight cores on a die- and it must have a very good memory interface and an IMC.

Well, the SAE did establish an industry-wide method to rate engines' horsepower in the 1970s, and that was a much worse inflationary problem than CPU benchmarks are. How about we get the IEEE to make a net performace rating system?

OMG! ur such a mindreader I was just about to POST that. I was going to Say More Level Cache and More Work on RISC arctectures would help with the current Speed problems that AM2 might have with COnroe. because thats what Conroe/Woodcrest basically did, they eliminated some of the Bottlenecks and overinformation problems with it.

I personally would like an organic neural network capable processor using the brain cells from a worm.

I would also like to see the advent of a control set that can be effectively run on any number of cascaded chips 3, 6, 10, 15, 21 etc.. so it can split tasks to be processed and re-join the results so we can have generic parallel computing that does not require specialised instruction sets to be coded into the applications or games.

PCI plug in cards that contain a control chip and a number of processors so upgrades are easy and dont require CONSTANT motherboard changes.

It would also be good if the same chips ran the graphics processing as well so the entire system balances itself rather than having bottlenecks all over the place.

I know such things are in the works, but it's still comparatively slow (150% of HDD speeds is still slow compared to RAM, although I guess seek times are probably a massive improvement which aren't mentioned in that article), is quite small (16Gb? :roll:) , and probably very expensive.

It's not a hard disk replacement, but might be worth picking one up to house your swapfile and a couple of commonly-used apps... I'd probably buy one if it was less than £50 or so (wassat? US$80 - 85?)...

Obviously it's a start, but it's not yet mature enough I suppose...

I don't care what it is as long as it runs cool and I can steal a dvd in 30 seconds or less (im joking...unless you can really do it).
March 15, 2006 7:03:19 PM

Look for more encryption of DVDs, and more software to get around it.

Honestly, I would like a system that I could run VMWare on. Then I could run Linux, Windows, OSX, etc..

Yeah, me to i got a AthlonXP 1700+ and damn it barely works on it. And even if it does it goes Like slig Slow. i need Money for a new AMD :(

That's more or less what I got my rig for (two HDDs, dual cores, 2GB RAM), although for some strange reason VMware Server won't run properly on OpenSuSE 10.0 64-bit :(  Version 10.1 ought to do it, and I can still run the player.
