K8L Stars Family : Altair, Antares, Arcturus & Spica - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Yea, I'm also not too impressed with the roadmap there..... There's not a whole lot there to boost my confidence. Intel's planning for 12mb of L2 cache but AMD is still sticking with 512kb. The C2D's are more power efficient and OC better..... I don't really see an ace in AMD's sleeve at the moment yet... I really hope I am just paranoid.

If you look at K8L, then you'd be amazed. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that it will best Core2. Natively quad core offeres slight performance boost in itself, and then when you look at it architecturally alot of bus's have double the bandwidth of the K8, along with other improvements. AMD isnt having any troubles at all right now, except for maybe not having enough processor since even though Core 2 is so amazing.. AMD is still selling its processors like hotcakes, and there are backorders on some of their processors. When AMD cant keep up with demand, thats when you should know that they are still doing well, considering selling their processors at a steady rate has worked so well up until now.

I still recomend looking at K8L architectural changes, you'll see why I have no doubts.
