bit-tech.net | AMD developing reverse Hyper-Threading?
"http://www.bit-tech.net has info about a potential new AMD processor. Allegedly, the AMD is developing a sort of "Anti-Hyperthreading," which would allow two (or multiple) physical cores to emulate one physical core."
"This 1,100-pound street-legal road rocket was designed by ex-McLaren engineers, and can reportedly go from zero to 60 in 2.5 seconds with a maximum speed of 200 mph."
Straight from Ars Technica: "…Microsoft is already gearing up for a splashy Vista launch experience that will hearken back to the glory days of Windows "Start Me Up" 95. The hype machine is designed to get people excited, get them lined up outside Best Buy at midnight, and most importantly, get them buying. How can a company create this much mass excitement for what is, in the end, a computer operating system? Dave Block, a Vista product manager, told attendees at this year's Intel Developer Forum that he has the answer."
Straight from Ars Technica: " Advanced Micro Devices has been in the news a lot over the last few years, not only for their technical successes and marketshare gains, but also the company's legal battles. AMD filed a lawsuit against rival Intel last July, charging that the chip giant has "unlawfully maintained its monopoly by engaging in a relentless, worldwide campaign to coerce customers to refrain from dealing with AMD.""
