http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/12/04/top_secret_intel_processor_plans_uncovered/ Interesting times ahead for Intel. Yes, amd has the performance crown but the new processors are looking extremely appealing. Yorkfield cores are currently undergoing signal integrity testing and just imagine an 8 core setup The key note to take away, and something not mentioned in the THG article is the development of ultra-low power procs for various apps and that technology being migrated to the desktops. We have seen examples of this with the Yonah core and there will likely be more info on these (potentially) sub 1w procs soon. I can't wait to see what AMD has up its sleeve to counter some of the new developments at Intel.
