I'm excited to see how much PPD will increase with the 8core bulldozer vs my measley sixcore phenom!

Give me a faster CPU, who cares about more cores. 99.9% of the population won't utilize more cores. I want more FSB speed.
I'd rather have a faster quad core than an 8-core cpu.

ignorance^^


Windows8 will monitor & use as many cores as you have. But, Windows7 does a pretty good job of it, too.

A faster CPU does nothing, if what it calculates, has to wait for something else to get done. It might be fast, but it isn't quick & unfettered. Single tasks rarely require MHz, or IPC anyways. (lol @ BAPCo)

Multi-threading was in it's infancy. 64bit OS is mainstream now, so is 4GB of memory, (even in budget laptops). So, now coders can bloat their software, but take it multi-threaded. Until the time comes (in a few years)where their 64bit forays need to tighten up and run efficient.

Same thing with tessellation.. coders will flux in the same fashion.


Irony: Odd, how nearly on the eave of when every cell phone is about to become dual core... ur the one touting the death of 8+ core machines..?

I wonder how this will do with it's 8 cores against a 2600k with it's 4 cores and HT at F@H.

A lot better

If I try to explain I'll go into areas that a server person would be able to explain better than me

what can use 8cores, games don't

I don't know how many ways this can be put, it would be like an Intel with HT switched on.

As for games, there are games out there that take as many cores that you can afford to throws at it, and it just going to get more commonplace.

Fallout 3 , BFBC 2 that's two that I play where core count makes the difference.

But instead of making reasons why we don't need it, be thankful that it's there and it's becoming more mainstream.

It might kick game developers up the backside to take advantage of it.

And please stop acting like gaming is all people do with their CPUs. Gaming is GPU dependent. CPU power is much more important for things like encoding, rendering, and folding.
this is a truth.

If Intel uses it then it's going to be a sure thing that will be used

apart from gaming.

i surf the net, movies, music, miscrosoft office etc.

i dont do any rendering, encoding, folding. i'm just your average pc user.

cheers
In your case probably not. wait to check out the 6's or the quads.

Until we see more software developers make use of it.......yeah. But that being said if just like a physical version of Hyper Threading.

Think of it like this:

Intels HT:
HT OFF: 4 pipelines for 4 physical cores, 4 threads simultaneously

HT ON: 4 pipelines for 4 physical cores, but 8 threads simultaneously.

Bulldozer: 8 pipelines for 4 modules (8 physical cores), 8 threads simultaneously.

I know that this isn't exactly how it works but this is to just give a basic idea.


Sorry double post

How does this relate to Bulldozer?

if that's all you do then you can sell your processor and get a 555 dual core. it will do everything you wanted and more. no, you do not need bulldozer if that's all you do.
