New Chips, Cards, and a Quantum Leap

Intel is scheduled to release the Pentium 955 EE on December 27th according to The Inquirer. It is spec'd at 2MiB L2 cache per core, and 3.46 GHz core clock, with a 1.066 GHz FSB, using two Pressler cores on Intel's 65nM process.

AMD is all set to release the Athlon64-FX60 on January 10th, and Intel is going to be releasing Yonah about January 1st as well, so things ought to be rather interesting in the first quarter of next year.

It appears that nVidia is going to be releasing their 6800GS AGP card next week also, just in time to garner a few last minute holiday buys. Maybe ATI is putting a little pressure on nVidia to release some AGP solutions?

Finally, researchers at the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) have managed to create an 8-bit quantum byte as the next step in creating a fully functioning quantum computer.

Thoughts? Comments?

I keep wondering which new technology will go the way of the Beta Tape and RAMBUS.

that seem nice any more info on the fx-60 or will it just be a 3.0Ghz AMD 64?
The yonaha line of prossors comming out seems nice to. ALso how much differnce does a low nanometer mesure mkae? more transitors?

More transistors and less power. If Intel didn't hate IBM, so the story goes, they'd adopt the better way of using layers and layers of silicon needed to build CPU's that AMD and IBM do. Silicon On Insulator draws less power because the layers don't bleed voltage to other layers as much as the dinosaur method of stacking layers still used by Intel. Less voltage wasted means less voltage required and less heat!

Not entirely true I'm afraid. The lower the size of the features (the "nanometer"), the higher the leakage current tends to be. There is a sweetspot that depends on a bunch of factors, of which the feature size is just one! As people have moved into 60nm territory, the leakage current has shot upwards which increases power consumption. This is one of the reasons for the lowering of the voltage.

The flip side is that the lower the voltage, the more difficult it is to tell the difference between a 1 and a 0, limiting the maximum speed that the chip can handle information. This is one of the reasons why bringing the voltage up on a processor helps overclocking - to a point!

Can't wait to see how the new intel chips will do.
I think I will be waiting to upgrade now.
