AMD revealed new elements of its processor roadmap spanning the next couple of years, as well as its plans to scale beyond the current multi-core model. Intel talked about processors with "tens to hundreds of cores" at IDF earlier this year, but AMD believes the core race is just a repeat of the megahertz race and that adding more cores isn't the best way to go about scaling processor performance in the future. Instead, AMD is cooking up what it calls "Accelerated Processing Units"..Check it out at The Tech Report.
