Intel announces 10 core Xeon E7 processors! - Page 2

post #16 of 30

No one would know for sure obvisouly, but I do know that people's imagination/creativity usually outpace available technologies (often by a sizable margin).

Would there be a limit, when personal computers get so powerful that there is no need to make faster cpus, gpus etc. There is just no software that requires that power.

I have 16 of these on order - 4x10core, ~800gb ram, couple of 10g cards in each...esx and vdi stuff

I'm pretty sure the next Xbox is going to utilize one of these chips for it's CPU. Consoles when first launched are always more powerful than current PC's until like 1-2 years in to it's lifetime.

What happen to my AMD??, 10 cores/20 threads ... Opteron, Bulldozer! whats up?!

Consoles never feature the latest and greatest CPUs. (And besides, all modern consoles are PowerPC, not x86.) Consoles can just do more with less thanks to the fixed platform and the resultant ability to code to bare metal instead of higher level APIs.

Rumors are for a June release. It's a wonder that AMD can compete with Intel at all given the massive differences in company sizes.

AMDs are mostly slower than intel's CPUs even if AMD has more cores or faster clock speed. I read it a while ago when a dual core Intel Core i5 beat a quad core AMD Phenom which also had a higher clock speed than the i5.

As nice as this is, I'd still pass if I was buying a CPU in the next while.
Even when I got a new computer last, I passed on a Quad Core CPU because at the time barely any games supported them and I could get two cores that were individually faster than each of the four cores.

I don't do intensive editing or anything though, so videogames determine what I need.

Um, no. Cloud computing, if anything, will increase demand for more powerful CPUs in servers.

Considering cloud computing we can still go for a very long time before things are quick enough.

I doubt it'll happen any time soon, considering how much more bandwidth it'll put on our infrastructure. Not to mention, I wouldn't trust any company to handle/store my private data at this time.

Yeah, that's what I said. So what part don't you agree on exactly?

But will it blend?

And can it play minecraft?

Whoopdie buttholes! And next year there'll be a 12, and the next a 15, and the next a 21.5.

That sounds plausible. Looking at their history, in the last 3 years, they've gone from quad core to 10 core for their top end processors.
