AMD AMD says its badly needed quad-core desktop processors are on the way, and they'll arrive bearing a new name. Two quad-core chips will be available in the second half of the year, the Phenom FX and the Phenom X4, and a dual-core chip based on a similar design called the Phenom X2 will also appear by the end of the year.

Languages/systems like COSA need much more research before well-performing CPUs can be made for them.

While I am not familiar with COSA, this thread brings to mind something that I have noticed about this industry. Sad to say, but having a great product that is years ahead of its time is usually a death sentence. Although it also virtually guarantees you a permanent place in the history books, and an ongoing presence at sites like OSNews.

In extreme cases, you can even have your grand old name dragged through the mud for decades, like Amiga. ;-)
