I'm sorry... but someone's gotta sort out this whole processor naming thing. Sounds too much like a certain worm-headed alien from Star Wars.

Still, the processor looks pretty interesting.... but then again, everything does on paper.

Yep, QPI is gonna make some serious waves on the server side of things. All that lovely Penryn performance and efficiency (or likely even better), without the issues of FSB-choking for multi-proc enviroments. AMD probably isn't too happy about this, though.

How big is the AMD server market these days though? Is it big enough that a small dent (these chips won't come cheap... :) ) would affect them much?

Default My first post

HI Everybody!
Nice I am anxious to get the next gen parts. I am so far out of what is up to date for the most part I will need a lot of reading to get back to where I should be :)
