AMD promises completely different CPU architecture

Posted on Tuesday, April 29 2008 @ 20:32:14 CEST by

AMD claims its next processor architecture will be completely different from Phenom. The firm didn't share specific details but says the new architecture will have a couple of new features:
AMD has squeezed an awful lot out of its AMD64 architecture since it first materialised in 2003, and even the latest K10 core used in the Phenom chips uses basically the same architecture with a different cache system. However, the company says that it’s now looking at a whole new architecture for the next generation of CPUs.

AMD’s technical director of sales and marketing for EMEA, Giuseppe Amato, told Custom PC that ‘if I look at the next generation architecture of our CPU, then it will definitely not be, how can I say, comparable with the Phenom. It will look completely different.’ Amato was unable to give us any specific details of the new architecture, but did add that it would ‘solve problems that today we think can never be addressed by hardware.’
Lets hope for AMD that the new architecture will be as successful as Intel's switch from the NetBurst to the Core architecture.
