AMD's Amato Law: double the cores at half the power consumption

Posted on Tuesday, April 24 2007 @ 10:48:38 CEST by

The Inq writes AMD's EMEA Technical Director Giuseppe Amato held a presentation today in the Sheraton hotel in Tunis.

One of the things he said is that AMD wants to give consumers more power at less power:
In fact, he pledged that AMD would double the amount of cores on a chip and reduce the power by 50 per cent at the same time, postulating what might be termed Amato's Law.

We suggest it may last about six months.
Giuseppe also announced AMD plans to keep its chips backwards compatible for at least three years.
He also blasted the "competition" for producing marketing slides that are "misleading the market", on the hard numbers between Barcelona and Clovertown.

All that remains is to see some systems working. We were promised a working Barcelona system soon.
