The lighter side of the Spider?

Subject: Systems | November 21, 2007 - 05:43 PM |

Over at PenStar Systems there is a lighter look at AMD's Spider, and the components we have heard so much about lately.  A lot of the information you can garner from reading the review may be stuff you have already seen, bu I bet you have not heard the Phenom referred to as "the big girl with attractive friends".

"Phenom was supposed to herald AMD’s second coming (or was that the third?). A native quad core processor with an

integrated memory controller, Hyper Transport 3.0 connectivity, and a host of enhancements that would increase IPC, as well

as a split power plane design which would improve overall power efficiency and scaling. All of these aspects combined were

supposed to make the Phenom more than a match for the mighty Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad processors from Intel, both 65 nm

and 45 nm versions!"
