Phenom IIs? - Page 8

post #71 of 75
He's probably referring to the magic of Hyper Threading. 4 cores, 8 threads. He's still wrong, but at least there's a bit of logic there.

Yea, he's referring to Hyper-threading. I had an old P4 with Hyper-threading and XP saw two cores.

But back on topic. I can't wait for the new AM3 boards. I'm gunna do an overhaul on my core components. New Mobo, CPU, memory, even a new HSF. I'm glad to see AMD back on track with these new line ups.

either way, it's overpriced to upgrade to it, and performance wise I don't really see the point.
Which every bencmark Ive seen degrades the performance when enabled, so basically a waste, just like it was on the P4.

which means my point is still correct that I originally made (I should have mentioned that I was talking about the magical hyperthreading they added in my initial post)

I can't wait for the AM3 chips to come out. I would get the am2+ version, but I'd like to have a 95watt chip instead of a 125watt.
