Anandtech Looks into Dual Core: Part II
Subject: Processors | April 7, 2005 - 10:24 AM | Ryan Shrout
In this second installment from Anand, he is looking at the less expensive 2.8 GHz dual core Pentium D processor.
With all this excitement, we still have to keep ourselves grounded in the thought that dual core isn't here yet; it's still as much as two months away. For AMD, as we've known all along, the wait is going to be a bit longer on the desktop. The workstation and server markets will be serviced by AMD first, and we will have a look at workstation/server dual core performance as soon as AMD launches those parts. It's looking like, at least on the desktop, if you want dual core at a reasonable price point, your only option will be Intel. But the prospect of more affordable dual core chips out of AMD in 2006 is quite exciting as well.
