It doesn't. Turbo Core is an AMD feature, while Gulftown is an Intel architecture.

it is otherwise known as i9.

i think you mean turbo boost.

that gives a pretty good idea of it.

basically, it just gives one of the cores a spit of a speed boost, just to help in single threaded apps that need clock speed.

Core I9 doesn't exist. And if it did, it wouldn't have turbocore. Not unless AMD purchased intel.

Very real possibility. I'm interested in when AMD finishes the buying out process, if they will continue to use their (Intel's) inferior technology or just take over their fabs and whatnot.

Eh, no, it's NOT. i9 was a rumoured name which turned out to be incorrect.

There will be a real i9. It only makes sense, i3-i5-i7-?


I'm not saying it won't happen, I'm just saying it hasn't happened yet.

i doubt there will b i9, i9 was supposed to be a hexacroe, but some truly intelligent individual decided to make the i7970 a hexacore while the i7 975 is a quad, if they didnt use i9 then, i doubt theyll ever use it

Yet another example of Intel's extremely simple, sensible and easy-to-understand numbering scheme.. :)
