AMD "AMD described its forthcoming quad-core processor, codenamed Barcelona, in a session at today's Microprocessor Forum. Details of the new microarchitecture on which the processor is based (codenamed K8L) have been known for some time now. Still, the event brought some new info, and here are some highlights that I've culled from some of the reporting on it."

99% of the public doesn't need two cores, let alone four. Hell, in 5 years, maybe 64bit will actually be utilized.

The only thing these dual core, and quad core, systems are/will be good for is acting as space heaters and running up electric bills.
