AMD executive states Pentium D isn't a real dual-core CPU

Posted on Thursday, June 02 2005 @ 16:23:27 CEST by

Henri Richard, senior vice president for worldwide sales and marketing of AMD, said at Computex that Intel's dual-core platform isn't a true dual-core solution because it doesn't integrate two cores onto the same die.

While Intel was the first to launch its dual-core Pentium D desktop processors they shouldn't be regarded as real dual-core processors. Intel's dual-core solution uses two separate cores with individual dies packed together using multi-chip packaging.

Richard also commented on the rumour that AMD would start manufacturing chipsets. He stated AMD will not enter this market, as they have good relationships with major chipset makers. He also criticised Intel's new platform strategy which bundles its CPU, chipset and WLAN modules.
