"Conscious that K8 architecture could not compete with the next high-speed motorboat of INTEL, all its hopes are for the moment based on a new 'revolutionary' technology (it is our opinion, not it his) on which AMD works in this moment for after-K8. This technology is in fact a kind of anti-HT: There or HyperThreading sought to emulate two virtual processors with a physical processor, it is a question for AMD of emulating a single virtual processor with two (or several) physical processors."

At first I didn't see the point, until I read:

If AMD can perfect the ability to make multiple cores appear as one, then it could take a massive performance lead in applications that are single-threaded - like the vast majority of games right now.

Imagine a Dual Core FX-60 2.6ghz running in 'single core mode' at 5.2ghz ! :cool:

I really hope AMD realease a driver so that Current X2 chips can do this. :D

:cool: that would be pretty amazing

Yeah, I hope so too, but as Hyper-Threading is a in-build function of processors, not driver related, I don't know if that will be possible

a sort of "Anti-Hyperthreading," which would allow two (or multiple) physical cores to emulate one physical core.

Who would of thaught that 6Ghz processors would actually be possible! It's just an idea at the moment, sounds plausable, but I would wait until some prototypes are actually made.

If it works, it would not increase latency. ie: 1x6Ghz computes twice as FAST SPEED as 1x3Ghz, while 2x3Ghz computes twice as MUCH QUANTITY as 1x3Ghz. 3Ghz is 3Ghz, and it can't get any FASTer than the clock. It would improve overall speed for large computations though (process as MUCH QUANTITY half the time). This can be done with Multithreaded Applications, so the biggest gains would be in applications not programmed as Multithreaded (and without the overhead of software Multithreading)

Hopefully, it would own the new Intel chips... then again how long will this take to get from the thinking tank to production??

AMD are supposed to be releasing a new cpu in 2007, perhaps thats what this is,
