Following their march from standard processors to dual-core and quad-core designs in 2006, Intel researchers have built an 80-core chip that performs more than a teraflop of operations (trillions of floating point operations per second) while using less electricity than a modern desktop PC chip.

The rest of the story.
MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P, CPU: Phenom II X4 955 Deneb BE, HS/F: CoolerMaster V8, RAM: 2 x 1G Kingston HyperX DDR2 800, VGA: ECS GeForce Black GTX 560, PSU: Antec TruePower Modular 750W, Soundcard: Asus Xonar D1, Case: CoolerMaster COSMOS 1000, Storage: Internal - 2 x Seagate 250GB SATA, 2 x WD 1TB SATA; External - Seagate 500GB USB, WD 640GB eSATA, 3 x WD 1TB eSATA

The more we get the more we want and then we find out life was simpler and far less complicated when you didnt have computers. ha ha

All these technology increases in the cpu's now days. Makes you not want to buy a new pc because you spend so much and its worth nothing in 6 months.

I remember when I could buy a laptop keep it for a year and sell it for the same price I paid almost or even make some money.

It sounds nice but I doubt it will be in a pc near you within the next 5 years. Who could use so much speed?

I forget you said it but they came up with a formula for the advancement of computer technology.

I think it went something like "computing speed and power will double in half the time it took to get to the stating point"

Heck, I'm just contemplating upgrading my PC to Socket 939 with an Athlon 64. My AMD XP 2400+ system runs so good, for what I need, it's tough to consider upgrading. The only reason I may do it is so I can triple boot XP, Vista and some 'nix flavor.

I got a Amd 3200 both in my desktop and laptop both with socket 939. They work good but if you try and do several things at once they can slow down.

I want one of those new dual cores but for what I do I might stick with the 3200 for a while longer and get my money out of it.

I was thinking about getting a dual core until I found out that Windows XP and Linux cannot utilize them properply. In fact, after you install the drivers for the duo-core, only a few programs can even use the dual core processors to there advantage. I was thinking about getting it for Folding@Home, and it would work too, but by the time I get it, I would want to upgrade my mobo so I can atleast use DDR2 memory.

Yeah I am not sure if it cant use the other core but with a few programs if it would even be worth it or we could go for the FX series amd has which they put out some speed for a single core.
