AMD's response to Intel's Woodcrest

Posted on Saturday, February 25 2006 @ 09:37:16 CET by

The Inquirer posted some information about AMD's answer to Intel's Woodcrest processors. It's the K8L, a chip that will arrive in several variants in 2007:
AMD has been talking up specialised laptop chips, and other things that seem to differ more from each other than the current Turion/A64/Opteron mix.

The first of these that we have heard about is the server variant, and it will be a killer. It has 2x the floating point units, and sources tell us that it will push about 1.5x the floating point performance of the current chips in the real world.

Woodcrest is going to be an Int monster, but slightly weaker on the FP side. This chip, be it K8L or a new code name, should blow Woody out of the FP waters.
