AMD six-core desktop CPU expected by mid-2010

Posted on Thursday, September 17 2009 @ 16:17:54 CEST by

FUD Zilla heard AMD is planning to introduce a six-core desktop processor by mid-2010. This chip will aim at Intel's Gulftown, which is expected to be available in Q2 2010. AMD will be at a disadvantage though, as its chip will be 45nm while Gulftown will be 32nm.
We don’t know many details about AMD six core but it looks like that they will rework Istanbul and make it more suitable for Desktop. The big issue for both Intel and AMD will be how to put all six cores in use, as programmers still struggle to use four and in many cases even two cores, but the hope dies last.

AMD’s chip is also in 45nm, which doesn’t help at all, as Intel’s Gulftown is 32nm, which will probably give Intel huge clock and performance advantage.
