Hardware, Embedded Systems Ars' Hannibal takes a look at the announcements concerning quad-core processors from Intel and AMD. "The past few days have seen a burst of quad-core-related news items from both AMD and Intel. In this post, I'll take a look at announcements from both companies and try to put them in the larger context of the Intel-AMD rivalry." He concludes by saying: "This is a tough one to call, but don't expect a blow-out on either end. Also, the performance of the K8L core is the big wildcard, since it could go either way."

for those who don't know, gentoo allows for you to specify the ammount of cores to utilize while compiling.

and Gentoo has a live CD installer for the 32 bit environemnt that allows you to do a lot.

What I usually do is just browse the web while compiling using

links2 www.google.com
