Intel V8 Eight-Core Platform Preview
For everyone else who does a mix of gaming, surfing, taxes, office, photo, video, these dual-socket systems are not a good fit.
Someone can game just as well spending a lot less money. And instead of the entire tax return going to pay off a V8 and its power bill, you can instead take a nice trip to Hawaii :-)
Awful review! Where are any speedup graphs? Isn't that a REALLY interesting matter?
We need to know the real scaling...
from 1 to n cores
from 1 to 2 sockets
We already know c2d right now has a better IPC... what we need to know is the real-world scaling!
Actually, all the benchmarking data is already done; so, why not to calculate the speedups and etc from that dataset?
I'm sorry, but this is the worst (p)review I had from this (otherwise) quite respected website -in my opinion-.
Intel seems to be copying everything from AMD these days, including the bad ideas...
