I don't have a problem with them only releasing a 6 core chip if that is indeed what they intend to do. Its also "leaked" I wouldn't call that official.

I question anyones need for a 6 core chip, let alone a 8 core monster with HT. Yes a few of us will say encoding or rendering, and then the rest of us won't care anyways. The high core count systems in the desktop market are niche at best, and are best served via their server division anyways.

Give me four fast cores, thats all I need right now. I don't future proof on electronics, next year is Ivy Bridge, the year after that, Haswell.

Lol its a step backwards. More cores forces developers to make more software that can take advantage of the cpu more. Also, when newer cpus come out, it kind of forces console makers to come out with new consoles because with every year, they look more ancient.

We have had Quad core for 4 or so years now. Quad cores should become standard and duel-cores obsolete. Furthermore, if quad becomes the bare minimum, which Ivy Bridge is aiming for, than 6 and 8 cores will be considered performance, while 8-12 is enthusiast.

I am talking about desktop chips not server chips since I know servers have 12 cores already. The consumer market its where it at for me. Lets just hope Ivy Bridge is better. Until then, I am looking forward for Bulldozer and some 8 core power compared to Intel's crap and overpriced 6 cores lol.

Its a step forward imo.

Increased per clock performance? Check.

Increased per watt performance? Check.

Increased per core performance? Check.

Decreased power draw? Check.

More cores is side stepping the MHz issue as well as the per core performance issue.


lol indeed, my crappy 4 core chip destroys AMDs 6 (2-4 of which are typically not even used) core chip while using less power and not being as hot, more cores ftw bro, epic lulz.

Still all the above is great but, I still enjoy more cores, since I do much encoding and some games I have take advantage more of the CPU rather than GPU. Also, with more cores 4 and 6 core cpus will get cheaper since 8 cores will be the most expensive.
