Wonder where intel got the idea they needed a dual core processor?

AMD's dual-core plans keep heat on Intel!!

I doubt that, as AMD is forcing Intel to spend money on R&D instead of marketing to keep up that market share. DANG AMD!!!! :P
Clearly the Prescott core was delayed due to the implementation of the 64 bit instructions. I think Intel knew about the heat issues for some time but kept it under wraps.

Oh yeah, this post would be better suited to the General forum?

the M class chips are extremely powerful. We are talking about a 2 ghz chip that does 38 seconds in superpi. At stock. That's about FX53 level. Not to mention low voltage and hyper low wattage...

I'm probably going to wait on the dual-core Pentium-M chips to come out before I upgrade again.... :twisted:
