[DailyTech] AMD Triple-core Phenom Processors Inbound - Page 2

post #11 of 13
So what kind a apps are going to work with 3 cores, It just seems odd that they would make a 3 core CPU when just about everything else in a computer is based on even numbers (3 being odd). 2,4,6,8,16,32,64,128,256,512,ECT.

Afaik multi-threaded application don't rely on the number of threads being an amount that is a multiple of 2, so any number of cores would work with them.

Laser cutting the core off from the rest.

When they get a product out that clocks in above 2.8, then we will see that. For now, AMD is a low end maker.
