Yea, but can it run Crysis?
With this I could compile 12 levels of Quake at once! Which means I can compile entire episode + additional 33% of levels of next episode at the same time. That's awesome!
According to the link on AMD blog competing Intel product is Westmere-EP(tri-channel DDR3 memory controller). Let's wish AMD some luck for a change...
If one frame is fully rendered by one core you MIGHT MIGHT get like 12fps
If i was going to enter id say 48 CPU's is better left for like government/military applications. Not like terminators but lets use the scenario where the police are looking for a murderer or something. Assuming there were camera's (or high res satellite images) a processor like this and enough RAM the computer could use the satellite's to take pictures of people who look like the suspect and cross reference that with where the crime happened and when and give the police a "its most likely one of these people" list.
Or the FBI could just watch you bathe for kicks.
one hell of a folding@home machine, ps its my idea, so anyone submitting it, i want half the processors
Welcome to Earth....
Like 48 isn't it? Thats likely to be playable.
I suppose someone has to ask it
I wonder if these chips are overclockable? Probably not but hey, we can hope. Cooling for these chips must also be quite large.
i just hope they don't start trying to tell us that we need 48 cores in our pcs. i think it's a great achievement, but the average joe shouldn't need more than 4 cores at the very most, with one or two still being the sweet spot.
Yes, but this is the future, not the present.
I think the winning reason will be:
The best use of 48 cores is
having them because we can
You forget to mention that this is ONLY open to U.S. Residents which leaves us in the U.K. out in the cold once again...
Cleans glasses, then re-reads.... <looks abashed>
Finally, a sensible application for all that expensive tech.
I thought this would have x64-bit architecture! For AMD claiming the first x86 12-core processor, I'm a bit disappointed but well, it has 12 core, hurray!
A great way to make use of that is by making real-life simulations in engineer, better, faster and more accurate simulations and medicine. It can also be used to guess the loto and euromillions numbers which could be a cheap investment xD
I already posted this
But ya my title could have been better. Hindsight, great eh.
The world's most badass paper weight.
It is 64-bit, the article just mentioned x86 to refer to the class of processor (in comparison to ARM-type architectures). It would be extremely silly for a quad opteron system with 32 memory slots and 48 cores to have no more than 4gb of memory address space
AMD cause uproar with their recent 12-Core release as it "EPIC FAILS!" when it's beaten in benchtests by Intel's Q6600. You know it's going to happen!
