Conroe has single core at the low end, and dual core at the high end. (Not sure why some single core... Intel is pushing the dual core revolution)

Picture the Conroe as the Cedar Mill and a Kentsfield as a Presler, it is two Conroe's slapped together to give 2 cores.

But how long will it be before software can take advantage of 4 cores? Very few programs nowadays support dual core, so most of that raw power would go to waste. Although playing BF2, FEAR, Far Cry, and COD2 at the same time would be amusing.
Don't forget that you're still sharing the same system Ram.

i guess this would be nice, but people have problems already developing for dual core ;p

I think we can safely say that Moore's law has transitioned to every 18 months the number of computer cores will double.

That is pure speculation though. That "roadmap" is simply doubling cores every 4 years. There is no basis in reality for that, just a hope. Like back in 1955 saying in the year 2000 everyone will have flying cars and robots to do our dishes. Well, it's 2006, and I still have to unload my own dishwasher and my cars all still have wheels.

It's a nice thing to say, but another to accomplish.

I think that by 2020 twenty will will easily be out of the nanometer and into what ever the smaller number is, I am not sure what it is though..

i figure that if a 955Xtream is 1000 today then the new Xtream in 2007 will be 1200. also what is the point of more then 4 cpus?? i have four right now and if im not folding aleast 3 at a time i never get the cpu over 33%. seems like the new chips will really only be good for servers. i also think that by 2020 we will have a new computer tech that will be completly differant then what we have now. windows will be bankrupt cause linux will have cought on finally and intel will have bought out amd.

According to Intel thats what the purpose of the quad cores will be. The real money is in the server market not the desktop. It always take time for server designated Hardware to trickle down to the end user. Give it time by the end of q3 the quad cores will be more readly avalable to the end user.

Do you remember the people who used to say, "what the point in having more than 64 megs of RAM?"

LOL Got any 5 1/4 floppies left. I just ran out. I was talking to my Old Man and by 2020 ther will be 256 proccessors on a single die. The proccessor becomes a component on the chip. Wont that be grand?
