You where not waiting for it but here they come, AMD is now going to deliver a multi-core processor with tree processors on a single die of silicon which is supposed to improve performance and bring better performance when running state-of-the-art applications.
This as you may know is a response to Intel's dual-core processors, but since amd is to bring out this year the quad-core processor it is a marketing improvement, because when you go to buy a computer and you have to decide between a dual-core and a triple-core processor that has almost the same price but will bring you more power you as a buyer are going to choose what tastes better.
"With our advanced multi-core architecture, AMD is in a unique position to enable a wider range of premium desktop solutions, providing a smarter choice for customers and end users," said Greg White, vice president and general manager, Desktop Division, AMD.
Which means that this new line of multi-core processor will bring more choices when you wish to get a new computer.
Also Microsoft is really digging in this new idea as said Bill Mitchell, corporate vice president of the Windows Hardware Ecosystem at Microsoft Corp."We see potential for power and performance improvements through triple-core processing in the industry and are exploring with AMD the possibility of taking advantage of this in the Microsoft family of products.".
So you PC Gamers you better save your money because this new technology will not be in stores until Q1 2008, which means that you have enough time to think whether you want an Intel dual-core or an AMD triple-core.
