Intel, AMD dual core specs discussed

Maybe things are speeding up
Tue Jan 11 2005, 21:44
DEVELOPERS AT an X86-64 message board are discussing how best to get a dual core Opteron running using an Nvidia chipset.

One engineer discusses some of the specs of the chip, including cache size and clock rates, although you probably need to be something of a genius to wade your way through the technicalities.

And on another thread, there is a discussion of working with Intel's dual core chips, which may have core IDs as big as 256. Obviously for future use.

The first thread is here, and the second thread is here. Maybe everything is a lot more advanced than us poor hacks know?
