Quad-core processors explained

Posted on Sunday, December 03 2006 @ 21:05:50 CET by

Short Media takes a look at quad-core processors:
IBM struck first, making dual core processing a mass-market reality in the Power Mac G5 (with the PowerPC 970MP). They were soon followed by the release of Intel's Pentium D (8xx series) and AMD's Opteron (x60, x65 and x70), spreading dual core outside the Mac world. This time, a little over a year later, Intel is poised to strike first, preparing to release the Kentsfield, the first quad core desktop processor. We're going to explain what quad core is, how it's being implemented by the major chip manufacturers, what benefits it'll bring, and, most importantly, why we need it..
