AMD Outlines Plans For Future Processors

Our friends at the Tech Report sat in on AMD's four hour financial presentation today and gathered some information regarding AMD's future plans to introduce custom "Accelerated Processing Units" in next-gen multi-core processors.

"During its four-hour Financial Analyst Day presentation today, AMD revealed new elements of its processor roadmap spanning the next couple of years, as well as its plans to scale beyond the current multi-core model. Intel talked about processors with "tens to hundreds of cores" at IDF earlier this year, but AMD believes the core race is just a repeat of the megahertz race and that adding more cores isn't the best way to go about scaling processor performance in the future. Instead, AMD is cooking up what it calls "Accelerated Processing Units."
