[ZDnet]Intel Moving to six cores

post #1 of 17

Intel outlined plans to produce six-core chips in the fourth quarter. The move is that latest salvo in a game to out-core AMD on everything. AMD finally gets its quad-core chip out the door and Intel moves to six. The future looks like this: Four cores, six cores, eight cores, 10 cores, 12 cores. Oh my. Who wouldn’t want all those cores?

Great now instead of a "GHz" race it's a core race.

True dat. It will always be a race for something. But the more they fight the faster we get newer better stuff

Do games utilize 4 cores? no
Do games utilize 6 cores? no
8 cores? no
10 cores? no

This might be great for servers but not for us gamers.

More cores won't help all that much unless all apps start making use of those cores, especially games

Oh I'm sorry! I forgot all people ever use PCs for is playing video games! How silly of me to forget!

Yea I'm a gamer and I know we don't need more cores, but seriously. How many of you have computers with much more than you'd ever need? It's just an addiction for us. We gotta have it even if we don't need it.

It doesn't matter. Intel is a company. They make products in order to sell them, and will only improve if it allows for more sales. Like with clock speed, your average person is going to think more cores is better.

At this time only a handful of games can take true advantage of a quad core processor.

Where-as I can take full advantage of such a processor while working with my usual fifteen trillion windows all open while listening to music and trying to get some flash gaming in all at the same time.

Gaming isn't what drives the industry and I'm rather glad for it as the gaming industry moves slower than a snail on a salt lick.

unless you're honestly doing some major stuff or if it is for a server, then you really don't need 10 cores. 4 or 6 core cpu is enough for gaming, etc.
