Okay forgive me for being a little behind the times, but I have been offline for a while with moving house and having a sdpat with my last ISP over bandwidth.
Apple using Intel from next year! Are they wise?
The next generation consoles are gonna use PowerPC, errr I can only imagin this is because neither Sony nor Microsoft could find anything faster, why oh why are Apple shooting themselves in the foot by switching to intel? Maybe they are gonna get a deal on the junk chips intel were hoping would go in the new consoles. LOL
Seriously though people might well look at these new boxes and wonder hmmmm this baby is fast, can I get a PowerPC PC? But alas they won't be buying Macs to do so. As for Intel "looking ahead Intel has the strongest processor roadmap by far" 'Steve jobs' again errrrr I have looked at the reviews of Intel chips, I have read details on Athlon 64's and since I got Debian for AMD 64 I can catergorically state Intel are not strongest. Yes I have ranted about the Ath 64 elsewhere, but I must stress that if you re-read those carefully my gripe was the legacy part, not the leading edge longmode.
As for this roadmap, look carefully Jobs, it's written onn the back of a napkin after reading reviews of Athlons
If intel really had a longterm plan why are they playing catchup? Come on you don't plan to be second, which Intel clearly are given they have had a decided lack of forethought. AMD brought more 'into' the die, Intel never even thought of it! Accordingly AMD will continue to outperform Intel on lower clock speeds, Intel... Ack I could go on but it's getting late.....
