ccHT is becoming another AMD standard

AMD has opened cache coherent HyperTransport, now various co-processors are ready. Read the news here (Celoxica, HP, Cray), and here(Clearspeed vector FP). On non-coherent HyperTransport front, PathScale's infiniband can do 10 million messages per second.

Implications? Go figure, especially if you are inside Intel.

I heard from an AMD guy that AMD's game plan is like this, always keep a 40% speed advantage over Intel's fastest on the market. That's how AMD is going to differentiate.

Would be a nice plan but reality is slightly different, But then you can ask, what tests, 64bit,
how much power used totally, is that AM2, is that 5000+ or 64FX...4 x IPC, this future looks good

to begin with, it's not 32 bit, so basically Intel's selling an obsolete chip. You could have the fastest cpu in the world right now, but if it's 16 bit it probably wouldn't do you much good.
Now, the link you posted points to a page that doesn't say anything about Core Duo beating the FX60. Some of the benchmarks aren't even displaying. Also, it isn't the xtremesystems.com benchmark, it is a couple of pictures posted in a forum. Would you like to see how fast I can make a bunch of benchmark pictures up? With the pictures posted there that are actually displaying, there is nothing saying which color bar represents which processor. Also, the processors are overclocked. Who knows how comparably each one was.

And with all of this, you seem to think this benchmark is reputable? You really must be out of your mind. There are plenty of reputable sites. A guy on a forum isn't one of those.

correction for first line: not 64 bit

For the 1st comment, I have the same feeling that AMD guys are playing the game of 40% for awhile. They are even timing their CPU launch time, such as AM2 socket.. I think that is a smart move, wasting Intel's engry in chasing an unreachable target.. Well planned.

stupid jerks living in your own dream world, open your eyes! see this world who's taking > 70% market share! If AMD is that good, why can't he dominate the market??? You must think you are smart and other's are dumb, sorry, your are wrong! just like crazy people think this world is crazy!
