AMD Shanghai - eight-core for 2008

Posted on Thursday, April 12 2007 @ 0:12 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The first eight-core processors from AMD can be expected in 2008.

The company's eight-core Shanghai processor will be based on an improved K10 architecture with more L3 cache, faster clockspeeds and will be made on a 45nm process.

However, the processor won't feature a native design. AMD decided to "glue" two quad-core processors together to create their eight-core CPU.
