As many of you may familiar, AMD has currently taped out its Quad-Core Opteron. This forthcoming Opteron has of course tipped AMD's hat when it arrives to the following era AMD Athlon 64 FX processor. AMD has shared with us that we can surely count on the following-era Athlon 64 mirroring the Quad-Core Opteron plan without some HyperTransport bus links. Let's assume a look at few of the AMD Quad-Core common and alters.
As looked, AMD's following-era desktop tech will first be showcased with in the still-to-be declared Quad-Core Athlon 64 FX. At current shows of the AMD 4x4, Quad-Core has surely been referenced as a desktop component. The slide under shows you the map of the fourthcoming Quad-Core Opteron as good as the Athlon 64 FX.
Surely the highlights here are 65nm SOI which should bring power utilization down still further, "enhanced" Directions each Clock, and a completely replanned cache system that brings in a shared LIII cache. And most significantly the Quad-Core plan.
One of the most drastic alters that will be realized through the enthusiast is that we have an extra caching unit identified as "L3 cache."
This LIII cache is shared through every of the 4 cores and permits for few latency consequences to be named in a 4 core surroundings. It has been observed to the L3 can be elaborated in size as well.
Behind the ability of 4 cores we have few so intelligent power and clock scaling systems as well.
Every core will contain its own PLL or "clock-gen." This will permit the Quad-Core Opteron and Athlon 64 FX processors to scale down their power consumption so intelligently from being completely loaded.
