that is soooo true...

imagine how many cores there might be in 4 years at the rate intel is releasing new CPUs.


lol probably 16 cores if intel doubles the amount of cores in the previous CPU series.

pentium d wasnt even out for a year and already intel had core 2 duos.


im looking forward to upgrading to quad cores when the price drops, oh lets say about a thousand dollars.
Pentium D's weren't even really an advancement... two P4's stuck together isn't an impressive achievement. The new Core architecture is the biggest advancement in Intel history however... and yet again C2Q is just another Pentium D-esque invention, 2 C2D's stuck together.

actually nothing really competes with what the P6 core's did and still do to this day. Core2 is great but P6 changed our world. In 1995 we had Pentium and we had K5, with some Cyrix 686 action. Then first is the PentiumPro, in 32bit it smacks everything around, in later 96 the Pentium II shows up and the 233 version is 40% faster than a PentiumMMX 233 which is an acivement to say the least. The P6 core lived on untill Core2 Duo, sure Pentium 4 was net burst but what do you think Pentium-M and Core Duo use?

I think the Quad core would be cheaper if it was just 2 Pentium D's together.
2 Pentium D's = 4 Pentium 4's.

Yes, it would be cheaper, but it would suck. The Pentium D was horrible. (The athlon X2 was something like double the performance of the Pentium d) so it wouldn't be worth it.
