Re: Nehalem

It has EIGHT cores, and all are hyperthreaded! Therefore there are 16 logical processors! Slaughter.

Re: Nehalem

When will we start seeing software that can genuinely take advantage of two cores? ;)

I'd say, outside of a few specialized applications, never.

Re: Nehalem

Intel, for obvious reasons, is trying to push the development of apps that take advantage of multiple cores. Enter Ct. Intel puts it this way:

Ct: C for Throughput Computing

One of the main challenges in scaling multi-core for the future is that of migrating programming tools, build environments, and millions of lines of existing code to new parallel programming models or compilers. To help this transition, Intel researchers are developing “Ct,” or C/C++ for Throughput Computing.


Although this discussion might be better for our new programming board. ;)
