Okay, we have been hearing a lot about dual core and quad core processors coming out of both the Intel and AMD camps. Now that Apple has released the Octo-core Mac Pro, people are wondering about the benefit of having all these cores at their disposal. In this video, we speak with AMD about what they believe is the fundamental difference between the way they do Quad Core chips as opposed to the way Intel does it. Check out the video to see how AMD feels quad core computing should be done.
While hanging out in the AMD Performance Lab, Pat Moorhead sat down with us to give us a head to head look at a basic Intel G965 chipset up against the AMD 690 series chipset, focusing on gaming performance. These are the off-the-shelf computers you would buy at low cost for $500-800 or so, using integrated graphics chips. You gotta see this side-by-side comparison to see just how amazing the results of the AMD-ATi merger are.
Since aquiring ATi and merging their products and brand into their own, AMD has seen quite a bit of change over the past six months. We talk to Pete Hayes, AMD’s VP of Advertising & Brand Strategy, to first and foremost find out what exactly that title means. Once we get past that, Pete talks about what has changed at AMD, and what the future holds for the company.
Dan Snyder from Intel chats with us about their upcoming Core 2 Quadro line, and explains why the move to four cores is an important one. As Intel says, programmers are starting to write for multi-core systems, and if you want the snappiest PC on the market, you will likely want to be looking towards Intel’s quad core chips.
