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.

Software is already using it. Quake 4 and the nVidia graphics drivers both have dual-core support. Photoshop filters support it. Software build environments support it.

Any serious game in the future will support multi-cores, because the engines have to, to get the most out of the new game consoles.
