Traditional I see it as, thread -> cache -> free core; new thread -> cache -> free core; and so on. Is the new process more thread -> cache -> module -> 2 cores? Or does it act more like a watchdog? Where the main thread computes, and the second core does spare instruction sets? How exactly is information processed, step by step, in bulldozer?

I'm a newb and I bet it has been discussed many times before. Cheers on input.
I don't understand what you are asking. By default the OS scheduler is going to look for the next available core to schedule a thread.

looking at the new MBs out there i thought bulldozer was going to have 3 memory controllers not 2

Well, you were mistaken then. We never said 3 channels.
post #795 of 10602
Hello JF, I don't know whether you can answer this or not but I was wondering if pricing/specifications are going to be released before the chips are?

Thanks,

The Nintendo 3DS is just as technologically complex as Bulldozer?
AMD and as well the consumer does not want a rushed product as there are many variables that need to be tested.

As for the person asking about the triple channel memory, they've never stated this. The most AMD has said was that the server/workstation grade chipsets were capable of quad channel memory support. Triple/Quad channel memory is nearly useless for the consumer level.

No, it will not be released before the products.

It depends on what you are running, not what you run.
post #799 of 10602
Its not about what is useable at the consumer levelits adout your competition u know Intel the people who will buy black CPUs are not average people they r gear heads its time amd gives us what we want 3 Chanel memory controlers

Even if it gives them no incremental performance increase? I doubt they would want to pay more and not get any benefit.

As it is we have designed a whole new northbridge with ~50% more throughput. It is like getting a third channel without having to pay for one.
