Intel's produly displays answer to Native Quad-Core

Non-native is beautiful, says Intel. Sigh!

Intel engineers have the thickest skin, putting their primitive, crude, retarded, crappy, double cheeseburger design on their back. It's like saying -- "see mom, what an Intel moron".

Even Ratty says they need some originality.

$790? Is AMD trying to rip people off now? Lets see what you could get for the price of one Barcelona CPU:

Q6600 - $279
ASUS P5K-E/WIFI-AP - $155
Geforce 8800 GTS - $279
G-Skill DDR2-667 2GB KIT - $65


INTEL Q6600 142,000,000% BETTER THAN AMD Oopseron and here in stock and for sale today at Newegg.

BUY INTEL and NVIDIA hi performance, energy saving, AFFORDALE, cpus, platforms, and video solutions not AMD vaporware.

REAL PRODUCTS FROM REAL FABS... WITH REAL PERFORMANCE...thats INTEL, TWO 45NM FABS THIS YEAR - FOUR 45NM FABS NEXT YEAR.

$790 buys you an awesome video card and CPU that will eat anything AMD can produce alive. Then there's cash for a good motherboard and 2GB of ram as well! All with money left over.

AMD is stuck at 2Ghz, Intel can go to 4GHz: http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=42423

DON'T BUY AMD low 1.9ghz performance, EXPENSIVE, cpus, platforms, and video solutions and VAPORWARE.

Yeap, Sharikou be more careful when you read something because intelers will bite your ass...

In other news, hexus tested Harkertown (Penisryn) and the conclusion is not by far so bright and shiny as intelers thought. It is just a mixed bag of new features and higher cpu clocks, but nothing special. Just like that.

"Harpertown is a better quad-core processor than Clovertown: it's as simple as that. More L2 cache will gobble-up larger application data-sets and a higher FSB, on select models, will ensure that per-CPU bandwidth is less of a concern. Further, SSE4.1-optimised applications will run a lot faster.

Our benchmark results haven't told us anything radically new about the Penryn-based Harpertown and Seaburg chipset combo, really.

Stoakley, comprising of Harpertown processor(s) and the Seaburg chipset, will be officially released in November 2007, and that's when the Barcelona vs. Harpertown showdown will take place. Right now, though, think of Stoakley as a beefed-up version of the incumbent Clovertown/5000-series chipset."

anti-intel guy,

AMD is imploding under its own series of mis-steps.

AMD sat fat and happy and got caught by C2D.

It is clear that Barcelona will not enable AMD to make money.

AMD is squeezed between its high performing 90nm line and its 65nm poor yielding/scaling rev 10h cores.

What to do? How many more top engineers will leave? Probably A WHOLE BUNCH more.

In the meantime, you will cry yourself to sleep wondering how come you were so foolish to believe in the dream.

Sad, sad, sad.

AMD makes bold statements like this:

@giant,

Why they have used different system configurations between the glued Hampas & the glued Colov in the benchmark? Why they did not used at least equivalent system configurations so that we can easily perceived the true performance of the glued Hampaskelapatown over the colov one?
We're nonplussed by the Stoakley's operating system. We're not sure why a 32-bit OS was used in conjunction with a server/workstation-oriented machine, and benchmark results will be negatively impacted by it.

Was that because of the glued Hampaskelapa incapable to run windows X64?? Damn..

I also played with the latest q6600 G0 version and is pretty impressive. The oc potential is huge but it runs very hot at 3.46 GHz(about 48-49 dg. C idle & 67-68 dg. C full load) with stock cooler; With a Arctic Cooler Freezer 7 Pro the temperature dropped nearly 10-12 dg. C.... Q6600 does have potential but I'll wait for 2.5 Ghz Phenom version and I'll buy one, just for fun.

And about 200W.

Not with the revolutionary high-k process that allows for a ten-fold reduction in leakage.

Intel can do 3GHz Quad core with 120W TDP now, on 65nm. But on 45nm they have a smaller die and the revolutionary new process.

AMD admits that the high-k metal gate is crucial:

Dramatically reduces leakage current and allows device scaling to resume

http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/DownloadableAssets/July2007AMDAnalystDayDougGrose.pdf

See slide 24.

The clock speeds are going up. So what's the problem for AMD? For one, they're at least 8 -> 9 months behind Intel. Secondly, their 45nm process is NOT high-k. AMD has stated they will not reach high-k until a second generation 45nm process or possibly even 32nm.

Obviously I was referring to AMD being 8 -> 9 months behind on 45nm.

Just to point a reminder, Intel first showed working 45nm CPUs back in January of 2007. AMD has yet to do this.

Go back to that shithole called AMDZone stein where all the morons hang out.
You say they had no native quad-core idea? maybe somewhere in the smart land they figured out that it would be a pain in the ass to make one and we just let AMD hit the fan so we can see what happens? ... well AMD did hit the fan and it does smell like shit. Or can it be that that they thought that they had to make money for their shareHOLDERS so having a NATIVEquadcore would be too soon and not too easy. But now that they have finetuned their tools and ready to rip ass they still can make money for theri beloved shareHOLDERS and let amd AMD sink. But why would they let AMD sink is the question ... why help something if that something is doing it itself? :)

AMDs tri core will make the dual core chips become entry level cpus.


In case you had not noticed, dual core CPUs are already entry level.

Yes, what a brilliant idea! Intel must be terrified of AMD's tri-core CPUs! Up other with other 'innovative' solutions like the 4x4!

As someone said, "we prefer to have all our dies working".

Really ho ho, here from Intel:
Interestingly, Intel is toying with another, more permanent possibility for some future Xeon products: disabling one core on each of the two chips in a package in order to yield a dual-core solution that has 6MB of dedicated L2 cache per core.

Wait, let me guess what you are going to said, disabling one Intel core is not the same of disabling one AMD core. The Intel Core disabling is simply a genius idea, and has nothing to do with yields or even trying to create a market segment for themselves.


Btw, just looking at the die shot shows nothing about how the cache is being shared between cores.

The NB/IMC shares the cache.


Looking at K10 die one could think that that also has two separate L3 banks and two of the cores are very far away from it.

The NB is between the 4 cores, so the 4 cores are connect trough the NB.
The NB is connected to the L3 cache, and the NB is connecting to the IMC.


Looking at K10 die one could think that that also has two separate L3 banks

If that’s the case then it also has two separate L2 for each core, leaving 8 L2 caches for 4 cores……….
Comparing to Intel, Intel has 16 L2 caches for each core and is not shared because there are two clearly spared L2 banks…

Ho ho that doesn’t seams from your posting quality standards…

Intel shows off Skulltrail

IDF Fall 007 It officially exists, and is officially fast



INTEL FINALLY UNVEILED Skulltrail, and it looks to be a winner. When the company first rolled out the original answer to AMD's 4x4 called V8, we were a tad skeptical. I am glad to say that when it comes out a year later, it will be a much better beast.
What is Skulltrail? It is simply a massively massaged Stoakley server board with most of the mods directly affecting gamers. You take a 2S Harpertown system, put in dual Nvidia PCIe chips to allow for 4 true 16x slots, and cut the number of FBD slots from 16 to 4.



It doesn't take a genius to figure out that a dual Harpertown with four GPUs is going to be a monster for gaming. AMD had a potential contender with FASN8, but since it foolishly killed it, Intel is going to own the gaming crown in 2008 no matter what AMD does.

How well does it do? With stock frequencies of 3.40GHz, 1600MHz FSB, dual 8800GTXs and 2 x 2GB Micron FBD-800 sticks, it hit 17006 on 3DMark06. It also scored a bit better than 20K on Cinebench, 21521 to be exact. I wonder where I have seen that before?

There is a lot of tweaking left to be done on this box, but it should be out in a few months, end of the year or early next. By that time, with more memory and four GPUs, well, it is going to be unmatched in performance. Intel had an early version running at 4.0GHz, more is sure to come in short order as the platform matures.



What more is there to say? When we criticized Intel, the lads did the work and came back with what looks like a winner. AMD knifed the competition leaving Intel the uncontested victory in the gaming space. It is no longer a contest, Intel wins this round




So, in a nutshell for fucktards like oneexpert: AMD HAS NOTHING TO COMPETE WITH SKULLTRAIL AND BY KILLING OFF FASN8, AMD CAN'T TOUCH INTEL IN THE PERFORMANCE GAMING ARENA

You can cut and paste all you want you useless waste of DNA, AMD got owned.

PS: Tri-core won't cost Intel billions, as they too, can easily turn off a core, but why do it when you can do quad for the same price? News flash, Intel can easily afford to price quad cores in the same price range as the dual cores. Since I already KNOW you are that stupid, I won't even bother to ask.

AMD Fanbois, lowering the world's overall IQ ten points at a time.

Nehalem 8 cores is indeed native


Intel already did the first testing with this possible eight core design and as it has the best tools in the world it has a chance to do it. I guess Intel is really upset and wants to dominate the market and it doesn't leave much chance for AMD's real recovery.

Did you read that Pezal, BaronMatrix? 3.4Ghz being tested already. It's just as I said: By the time Nehalem launches Intel will be at clocks of approximately 4GHz with the Penryn based CPUs.



You're confusing me with yourself. I am for both companies doing well and creating great products. I just buy AMD because of people like you.

The Chairman of Acer recently spoke out about OEM margins being razor thin while Intel sits at 50%.

Obviously Intel is NOT everyone's friend. As AMD can provide more volume they will get more share - revenue and volume.

That will be good for everyone. The X3 initiative is brilliant as AMD can release those before the Kumas and have higher ASP automatically as X4 and X3 will command a price premium at all speeds.

I would think that AMD - NOT SHARIKOU - will leave about 15% difference in perf for the two so I figure X3 can be clocked several hundred MHZ higher and still not be as fast as X4.

Rahul Sood went on record and said that benchmarks for X4 at 3GHz surpasses all current chips.

If you assume 25-30% higher clocks at the same voltage for X3, the X3 at 3.4GHz will surpass even Yorkfield at 3GHz+.

I am of the opinion that AMD released the lower clocks to keep the perf\watt crown and as the new revs come in they will be able to keep the power down as with 2224SE.

Also, all of the talk of AMDs 65nm process is BS because K8 was originally designed for 130nm. So it is indeed a great job to shrink it down to 65nm.

The true test will be Kuma as it is dual core AND designed for 65nm. It has been said that B2 revs will hit 3.4GHz at 1.2V (Fudzilla) and that X4 will hit 3.2GHz at a slightly higher V.

It has also been reported that a B3 rev is being tested now so it may have a little more headroom.

I was expecting AMD to get to about 3.6GHz with dual chips and 3.3GHz with the quads in a reasonable envelope (read:less than 125W).

Intel's issue isn't with clock speed it's with TDP. the faster it goes the more power it uses, which is why AMD forgot about the clock speed war and concentrated on efficiency of the platform.

While I enjoy all this awesome power you can enjoy the wait for AMD. I hear they might have enough good 2GHZ quad core dies to launch Phenom for desktops at 2Ghz by the end of the year!


You mean like the three years you had to wait for Core 2? Oh wait it's only been less than a year and Newegg is selling them pretty good.

The high price is to be expected as the same thing happened with Core 2 for the first month or so last year.

Dell is advertising them for their 2950 server models and I expect that as soon as they get a few thousand systems qualified they'll start taking orders. Give it two weeks.

Like I say I hope they stay within a few % of each other as none of you will have anything to argue about and perhaps you'll go away.

Intel thinks that AMD is in trouble, well no real surprise there. The company sources have told Fudzilla that Intel usually has yields up to 90 percent which sounds really great while Intel doesn't believe that AMD can come even close to that number with Barcelona.

K10, Barcelona is a big chip and that is why some of the cores are failing, hence you get triple core chips.


http://www.fudzilla.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=3201&Itemid=51

Tri-core is not something AMD wanted to do, but is forced to do due to it's awful 30% yields on Barcelona. So much for BARONMATRIX's stupid story that AMD made a tri-core design from scratch. Meanwhile Intel's yields at both 45nm and 65nm are at 90%.

Intel's 45 nanometre quad core codenamed Yorkfield runs at speeds of up to 3.4GHz and Intel can ship this part tomorrow. Sources have confirmed that with some tweaks the core can do even more and with some overclocking even 4GHz should not be hard to reach.

The 3.6 to 3.8GHz should be easy and even if AMD comes with 3GHz Barcelona this year we sincerely doubt that this chip can beat the 3.4GHz Yorkfield.

The problem for AMD is that Randy Allen confirmed that he expects 2.5Ghz Barcelona by the end of the year. AMD needs far higher than 3Ghz and they just can't get it.

But we'll leave BARONMATRIX to be delusional and think that AMD can deliver 3.4Ghz tri-core CPUs from a failed four-core Barcelona die.

Now back to our good friend Oneexpert.

Really, that's nice. Care to give me a link to the Opteron 2350 then? I wouldn't mind checking out the specs on the fastest Barcelona CPU since they are apparently available. Of course, Intel has had quad core CPUs at 2.66Ghz available for over ten months now.

The whole point of the Intel shirt is to say that it is NAIVE to think you have to have a native quad core. Do you sleep easier at night knowing your quad-core is native when it does not make a difference?

MCM allowed Intel to get a 10 month lead to marked with their Quad Core product. Intel also wins most benchmarks with MCM. Intel has better yields with MCM.

AMD has TERRIBLE yields with native quad core.

So who is smart and who is dumb?

What is the advantage of the native design, and don't quote any synthetic memory bandwidth benchmarks.

You guys are sorry bunch!

Here is the facts!

Barcelona is really a very nice design with good tradeoffs in terms of what AMD was limited on 65nm.

There is no fuck up beyond the fact that AMD is too small, has one fab, has imature and slow 65nm technology. And thus Barcelona units are limited ( poor yield, littel fab ), slow because of slow silicon, limited design resources to respin in in the single fab.

Bottom line is AMD did as we all should have expected. They will continue to have interesting ideas, like their current roadmap. ON paper looks great. The problem is they don't have enough quality people, enough fab capacity, enough money to get good silicon technology to execute. Expect this trend to continue, great ideas that come up short with products slow, late, buggy, and limited supply.

People don't get it can continue to root for the cubs. They can't compete with the Yankees. The only reason AMD looked so good was INTEL screwed it up for a few years ago. They got their mojo back, their superior resources, silicon, capacity, and big bank account will keep this lead. INTEL doesn't look like it made any mistakes on 45nm with HighK/metal-gate with it comeing right on time. Penrym looks exactly as they stated coming on time with all the improvements over C2D they need. Nehalem is already alive and looks to have plenty of gestation time to deliver as planned in 2008 a quad and more core that will completel crush anything AMD has. Like I said AMD will be late for everything on their roadmap.

Why is it that their is NO annoucment of any of AMD's 2008 product TOs? We already have INTEL's demo'd. Where is any annoucement of AMD's 45nm. They have been pretty quiet. We all saw what happened on Barcelona. What does quiet mean? Means not going well, late.

AMD is finished... you can take that to the bank!

To whom it may concern,

Even the top brass at AMD like Randy and I think that Christian M. Howell is a retarded fucking idiot. He says 3.4Ghz? We can barely make enough 2Ghz CPUs for Dell!

Even I admit that AMD is fucked. I watched those IDF webcasts and almost had a nervous breakdown. We're still trying to get our first generation quad core Opteron above 2GHz while our competior is at 3Ghz. Then I find out they are going to launch a 45nm second generation quad core on November 12th? If that wasn't enough, they even demonstrated a third generation quad core! Our competitor must be breaking some kind of law by progressing so quickly that AMD can't keep up.

It's alright, as we've already come up with a counter for this. I've got Randy Allen making a new Power Point presentation showing that we've got some new technology that will let us increase clock speeds to 5Ghz! When people see this our share price will go up $2 or so until they realize it's a blatant lie. While the stock price is up Randy and I will cash in and sell all our shares making a few million each. Then I'll be off to my Hawaiian island to enjoy my retirement!

The future of computing is here today at AMD.

With obsolete 2Ghz CPUs that are clearly slower than Intel's existing Clovertown CPUs?

AMD loves to make up nonsense that they were first with intergrated memory controllers and graphics, none of it is true.

386 and 486 CPUs had on-die memory controllers as well. Who really cares?

The Intel Timna CPU had both intergrated graphics and memory controllers.


AMD only introduced HyperTransport because their own FSB was stuck at a pokey 400mhz.

The pathetic thing is that Intel is developing Larrabee from scratch, AMD had to go out and buy companies like NexGen and Ati. It's clear
that AMD cannot make a solid design
on their own.

Well, they did try with K10 and the results speak for themselves. 30% yields and stuck at 2Ghz. Their yields are so pathetic that AMD will introduce the 'innovative' AMD Triple Cripple CPU next year!

Of course the phenoms will be out soon enough


No thanks. I've already been enjoying quad core CPU performance for months now. 2.4Ghz quad core performance now that overclocks to 3.6Ghz on air with the G0 stepping.

Q4 for Phenom. Just ten months behind on quad for servers, and about a year behind Intel with quad core for desktops. That's just embarrasing.

AMD will be stuck with low clockspeeds on 65 nm and when they finally get around to it 45nm. Intel can clock the CPUs much higher thanks to the revolutionary high-k metal gate 45nm process as we've seen. Intel takes the clockspeed up with new process technologies but AMD takes them down.

Quad core 2Ghz at 65nm? They'll get that to 2.5Ghz or so, then go to 45nm and end up back at 2Ghz! Just the same way with dual core 3.2ghz at 90nm, but only 2.6ghz at 65nm.

Learn to read an article you moron - that's 10% of Intel's Information Technology staff, or globally about 1000 people...nothing to do with their engineering staff, nothing to do with their FAB staff, and has nothing to do with their chip design, production, sales, or marketing.

AMD cuts perks

No more stock buying programme



By Charlie Demerjian: Monday 24 September 2007, 08:19

IT LOOKS LIKE AMD is starting to tighten the belts. As of November 1, 2007, the employee stock buy programme is being canned. This programme allowed people to put in up to 20% of their salary into AMD stock at a 15 per cent discount.
If you flip the stock immediately, you end up with a ~3 per cent bonus to your salary, if you hold on to it, well, you play the market. This was considered a 'perk', and that perk is now a thing of the past.

In addition to this perk, bonuses and charity gift matching are also on the chopping block, and there is word of forced vacations. It is not the end of the world, but neither is it a way to make people happy. Tough times demand tough reduction of perks. µ


STOP POSTING INTEL NEWS FROM 2006 fuckwit Its old hat news, and Intel has CLEARLY fully recovered from the changes and is handily beating AMD.

First, Intel has layed off somewhere north of 10,000 employees over the last year, and looking to increase that number. I think it's pretty obvious that these ex-employees would have alot of anymosity towards AMD and we are seeing this all over the net.

Or it could be an orchistrated attempt by Intel to try and overwhelm the masses with propaganda perpetuated ad-naseum on all the major forums and blogs around the web. I say it's a combination of the two.

Intel are treating the people not involved in this campaign like suckers, and insulting your collective intelligence. You'd have to be pretty naiive to believe there are that many that feel as negative about AMD as Intel's marketing is trying to convince everyone. It's classic viral marketing and we'll see this prove true in the not too distant future.

Intel aren't fooling the people that matter.... I wonder how many of those 10,000+ ex-employees were offered some sort of compensation to promote their chips and company. If you look at any forum, there seem to be a proportionate number of what I call FUDSTER's, to the number of memberships and amount of activity.

It seems classic Intel to me. If you can't compete on products alone in a competitive environment on the merits of your products, and the world knows of your anti-competitive practices in the market place, this seems like a logical next step to attempt to continue pulling the wool over the eyes of customers.

It sure will/would be interesting if/when someone decides to spill the beans....

I won't comment on Barcelona's percieved lack of performance, and what that might mean...
