This is looking good especially scaling up to 16 cores in one socket. I think in many cases maybe except of course straight server throughput, and in super high end area such as design being architectural, and or other high end graphical work loads. We are somewhat at another plateau where hardware is well beyond many software needs, especially in the consumer realm. Those loads in direct information management as well as with scalar applications (3D, massive tessellation) and projection also use it on the design side of things. With these AMD procs I am glad to see them moving forward as everything seems to do in the hardware world of computing. I am truly wondering if AMD is going to use the 3D depth build requirements in there new line of processors. I know Intel will within the next 2 years (I think the first will be in 2012, and refined in late 2012 early 2013), as I believe this will change a lot of things. Either way as I said earlier about the plateau I think in many areas the hardware is once again beyond the software, but I also think that is going to change quickly. So seeing this never ending non stop move forward is very good. If you look at the wider market AMD in some areas is outpacing Intel with some of there innovation especially in multi proc yet low energy processor implementation. I am really hoping there next core line is up to where they need to be.
"I just wonder how far will we get in terms of core count in the the not to distant future for home use. We got an 8 core by the end of this month that will be available, what will be the standard in two or three years. All that power, amazing."
That is amazing, it is good to see AMD embedding themselves in the HPC market. Do you think we are going to see more manufacturers embracing AMD and building servers with their products.
@Rapid I would agree that the hardware has the capability to run larger software packages with ease this type of hardware development allows the software manufacturers to build bigger and better more power hungry products. Which is all good as long as they are still optimized to use the least amount of resources as possible and still do their job.
Im totally rooting for AMD on this one. Its exciting to see them trying something absolutely new with CMT, making a developmental step ahead of intel. I remember when intel released the first quad core (I had a 3.0 Ghz P4) and i though "really? is that necessary?". Things have come along way, and assuming software continues to scale with core count this technology is going to prove its worth to AMD.
Yes; they seem to be very efficient, if you look at the other post on these, realneil has a benchmark (Overdrive) photo and each core is running at varied clocks, but they are all at 19C, which is ridiculously low, especially when some were running over spec and some under. They are all at the same 19C temp. All of them being at a same heat index but running at the same temp shows me great efficiency in both energy usage as well as in the build and cooling specs on board.
