However, the eight-core system was able to convert 720p video from one format to another (the company declined to comment on file formats) in real time - while maxing out all eight cores at the same time.

Why is AMD avoiding to show any benchmark numbers?

Good for AMD, but I think Intel's gonna come up with a native 8-core Nehalem sometime in Mid 2008.

honestly, based on Intel's roadmap, I don't think that they (intel) have anything to worry about. They're sitting back wondering what AMD's next move is so they can counter it with something else of equal or more awesomness.

I mean, we're talking about the chip team that designed the Pentium M that started this mess about getting the most performance per watt. They've designed the Pentium M, Core, and Core 2 so far, with no doubt that Core 2 45nm or Core 3 around the corner. The Pentium line is extinct. Intel has nothing to worry about.

EDIT: The "Core" based Pentium e's are being released as super lowend chips. I guess I spoke too soon about the Pentiums. At least they're not netburst.

Well let's see some performance numbers before we all start patting ourselves on our backs. I would like to see AMD put the heat on Intel though as competition is a good thing.

*yawn* AMD is going to blow Intel out the water like they promised the R600 would do to Nvidia's 8800GTX right?

Wake me up when AMD actually has benchmarks.

QFT...And these arn't even hitting until Q4 right? Or am I mistaken? Intel's 45nm part will be out by then...It will be an interesting winter, thats for sure...

Just because you have a grudge doesn't mean AMD wont dominate for another 3+ years.

4 cores .... 8 cores ..... hell.... only just now are games coming out that use 2 cores! New tech always excites me, but the OS's and games need to catch up quickly.
