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.

RE: Why multicore

On the story of Xorg and the likes; there was a move made many years ago to make a multithreaded X server, but it never actually got off the ground - the justification was that the complexity far out weight the so-called 'performance boost' it might possibly get.

With the eventual mainstream adoption of multicore processors, is this the time to revist the idea of a multithreaded X server?
