Ahh, AMD - always copying Intel :kaola: 

What's next - double cheeseburgers?? :D

What about X86-64???
What about integrated memory controllers???
What about Quick Path Interconnect (copy from HyperTransport)???

lol... its actually the other way around. and no - amd is not going to make a cheeseburger because they make processors. cheeseburgers do not perform calculations. www.google.com wiki AMD before thinking they are a fast food chain.

Buisness as usual.

It isnt SMT, do your homework, xbit, sounds like someone pining for their old has been

Who came out with the first designed for server cpu fpr DT that became the best on DT?

yes the I7 stole alot from AMD so it seems intel has been copying them HT on I7 stolen from AMD Integated memory controller also stolen intel does the staling AMD would get sued if they did this to intel lol

For one, Im glad AMD isnt using SMT, and even if Intel beats then to what AMD is really going to use, then it just makes sense, as AMDs form of multi threading is superior to SMT by a bit and then some

Here is a closer look as to what AMD is likely to do/use
http://www.csl.cornell.edu/~albonesi/research/papers/is...
Its call CMT, and is better than the SMT approach
Id point out, the Power 7 also uses this tech, and the claims by IBM that theres a 4x increase in available usage while still keeping the same thermal envelope, so this link is dead on

LoL I sure hope AMD's logical processors are superior to Intel's virtual processors.

Intel will most likely adopt this arch as well, and use the cmp, or cmt type of smt

LOL - guess somebody had to stir up the fire :D .

Anyway, what exactly is X86-68? 68-bit computing?? I'm sure AMD is the world leader in 68-bit CPUs, and welcome to it :sol:

Sure, and Mangled Corpse will be MCM (aka, double-cheeseburger according to the nearest AMD fanbois who also don't perform calcuations). IIRC, Magny Cours is 2 Istanbuls on a wheat bun :whistle:

So you're saying AMD's SMT is worth maybe 2 bits ?? [:rocket_sauce:1]

Happy Friday!! :D

Actually, the only downside is single threaded perf. I dont know the whole structure/usage abilities of it, but it is much better than SMT, and Intel may adopt it as well. Its just an overall better approach, but from what Ive read, really isnt worthwhile til 32 nm node, and since Intels already there....anyone have anything on sandybridge?
