Intel plans to detail an eight-core Xeon processor at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco next month, offering an early look at what appears to be the company's first eight-core chip.
this could only mean Xbox 720 to me, but hey I could be wrong.
ROFL that did make me laugh, there is not a cats chance in hell this will grace a consoles motherboard. The mere pirce of the processor alone will probably be twice that of the retail price of the next Xbox. The next Xbox will use another in-order processor just like the previous xbox's because in-order processors are CHEAP.
Charmers: Since the Xbox 3 is coming out tomorrow I guess your right..... The price will go down, also isn't the current Xbox 360 processor a custom one? If that is the case and Microsoft wants to use Xeon again then they will no doubt make changes to the schematics.
I thought Xbox 360 is using PowerPc chip, are they planning to switch? probably using emulation for backward compatiblity for 360 games..
Dual core, Quad core....and now.....Octo-core
Octo-core reminds me of Spiderman...
Dude you act like they won't use the same method that they used for 360.:) you have to remember that MS will go with AMD again(hopefully cinema 2.0) so they might use a 6-Core Processor.;-)
I plan on getting my server this year and I was thinking, do I get great server or mega pc with latest chip inside. what to buy ...
dual socket mobo for two octocores... hardware that could make toystory (in realtime) in the home. i can only imagine what that would be like to have. 16cores...
