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.

I just have two questions, dear friends, has software caught up with these new technological developments, taking advantage of these multiple cores?

Are you kidding?
It's the software becoming bigger and bigger and slower at the same time that makes faster hardware a perceived necessity.On purpose or not.

More cores does not necessarily equal faster.
