AMD AMD confirmed details of its "Next Generation Processor Technology" today, but it's really business as usual for the company. As AMD heads to four-core country, the company will continue to improve the bandwidth of its processor package, tweak memory and rely on help from partners to compete with an upcoming line of revamped chips from Intel.

Threaded software (and 64 bits) will be a must in the next 2 years; of course a word processor doesn't benefit much.
But games and database software will; other popular software like html editors (code cleaning) and graphics (photoshop, flash) will benefit very much also.

I am an AMD fan since my k2 cpu notebook (1999). Never looked back at Intel.
