AMD used Day Zero of Computex Taipei 2009 to announce its Opteron 2400 series, a sexa-core processor formerly known as Istanbul. But, where's the announced server/workstation platform?
With Nehalem architecture, Intel raised the CPU performance bar to a level that AMD has not been able to reach yet. Now Intel pushes it up even further by dropping a new top CPU on the market. But, is it worth the money?
European Commision announced its verdict on the case of anti-competitive practices Intel excercised in the past. It is not as high as 3.78B, but $1.45B is still a heavy chunk of cash.
It looks like the biggest challenge Intel will face in the next three years will be legal fines: Denmark issued a $0.63B fine for tax evasion, EU could set a $3.8B, and USA AT trial starts in 2010.
When AMD demonstrated playing Crysis on a 5.9 GHz Quad-Core processor, we had no reservations about this chip clocking high as a kite. LimitTeam proves that with a magnificent 7.13 GHz overclock!
AMD is continuing with releasing its core-unlockable processors. Only thing you need to have is a SB750-equipped motherboard and you're good to go - turn an Athlon II X3 405e into an X4 "B05e".
