Intel will do tri-core, following AMD's behind

Intel's tri-core processor will be three single cores strapped on a FSB.

One Intel engineer bragged that he can do it in no time.

The same Intel engineer claimed that he can do a 16-core chip if his boss wants it -- just strap 16 single cores on the FSB -- no brainer. As for benchmarks, just choose those which run in cache - 16 copies of super-PI will get very good results and make Intel fanbois dance.

In other news, Intel announced that it will have something called quick-path, a knock-off HyperTransport link in 2009 time frame. Dirk Meyer is laughing at the copycats.

Also, Intel will finally have an IMC, another idea copied from AMD. Intel says they had an IMC with their 8088, and they had an idea similar to AMD Fusion in 1990.

Jerry Sanders had those ideas back when he was at Fairchild Semi.

Paul Otellini at IDF:
Speaking of the [AMD] triple-core announcement, Intel's Otellini got off a shot at AMD by responding to the Inquirer's query about whether Intel would ever consider making a triple-core part with this zinger: "We see a distinctive advantage in having all the cores on one die work."

Ouch.

Nuff Said!

Paul O. putting the smack down.

Why do tri-cores when you can do quads for the same amount of money.

Tri-core is just more proof AMD is having issues.

Oh boy Sharikou.. you lie lot's. Mr Sanders never had those ideas LOL!!

Try DEC/Compaq and their Alpha line. AMD licensed the technology from Compaq who bought DEC but who then sold the tech to Intel.

Look up EV6 and EV7.

Hey, ask AMD to stop their copy of X86.

The comments here are the only thing making this blog worth reading. Thanks Sharidouche for writing such incendiary posts and then taking all the arrows. I really hope you're only pretending to be as stupid as your posts (rants) suggest. If you really are this stupid I'll give you one piece of advice ...

First rule of holes: If you're in one, stop digging.
