    I don't think AMD is working on anything Duo :p

    If you mean "quad-core" x86 processors, then Intel has already released their product and AMD is to do that next year.

    Well, it's probably fact, but then again, 8 cores are also a fact...

    Oh, i might have been mistaken then.

    But I could of swore it said quadricore.
    I was looking at a popular science mag and it said ten thing that will revolutionize computers.

    one was Windows vista
    and one was quadricore
    i dont remember the rest.

    thx for the reply

    Nah.. Intel and AMD are not revolutionising anything - it's all hype. Sun has been shipping true 8-core chips for a year now.

    I've never heard of SUN. is it a good company and are their product reliable? isn't a 4x4 basically a 64bit proccessor. I was thinking of a 128 bit proccessor
    (IF it exist) would be the quadricore I saw in the mag.
    it could be "all hype" as nodsu says and that it is on the minds of developers at AMD

    BTW how do I delete my own comments. #8 is a premature post. :eek:

    Deleted yours along with spam :)

    AMD 4x4 does not feature quad-core processors (yet?). It is a design with two sockets for two dual-core CPUs.
