So 4 is better than 64?
I guess I don't have to buy another computer after I get a 4 core machine.
Do you really need 4 cores?
^^^I need 40. Actually, I need as many as possible. More cores certainly wouldn't hurt me.
well i would take a single core 8GHz CPU over a quad core 2 GHz CPU anyday.
Honestly 4 cores is enough, i rather intel work on bettering processors in other areas besides the number of cores.
I'm thinking 4 cores of a high clock speed would be the better option.
This is an article about memory bandwidth that shows an 8 core mac pro only having 350Mb/s per core.
for comparison, on this page
2 fast SSDs raided together achieve 488Mb/s in one of the benchmarks
This just further highlights the importance of the "uncore."
The upcoming Sandy Bridge microarchitecture will supposedly improve interconnections. Intel is also working on memory stacking etc. on CPUs in the far future.
interesting. i hope that they figure a way around this. if not, 8 cores is the top
me likey my 4 core machine
Just one hugh pipe. Say around 1024 lanes, each running up too 1gig bandwidth. Yea that should hold me for a few years.
Oh yea, give me 1 TB Upload and DL speed too, "For free"
