It no secret to anyone anymore that in about 6 months AMD and Intel will roll out their six-core processors for desktop platforms. However, we decided not to wait until then and put together a system with a six-core processor today. It is built around a six-core AMD Opteron 2435 from Istanbul family.
Final rendering is a well-paralleled task that is why six-core AMD processors appear faster than quad-core CPUs from the same maker. But unfortunately, they are still unable to compete successfully against Core i7-920. Therefore, the outcome of the upcoming competition between the future six-core AMD and Intel processors seems to be predetermined.
