Thuban Hex Cores
 
AMD Leo RoadmapEarlier this week AMD announced Opetron CPUs with 6 cores, but they're aimed for at the server environment. They have told us that there will be desktop counterparts coming very soon too. It is very likely they will use the same socket AM3 and carry the Phenom II name, to make it easier for customers, take note Intel. The processors - codename Thuban - could be on the market as soon as Q3 2010 according to sources. Supposedly similiar to current X4 processors, with an onboard DDR3 memory controller, 512KB L2 Cache per core and 6MB of shared L3 Cache, likely to continue using the 45nm microprocess. The launch is set to coincide with the upcoming Leo chipset which will produce the 890FX and 890GX chipsets.
 
Intel are busy too, their roadmap shows 6 core "Gulftown" CPUs pencilled in for Q2 2010, based on the 32nm process though.
 
Exciting times for the consumer, competition is always good. Discuss in our Forums.

I must say, try this program

Its definately made my system faster (make sure you turn on PIOZR in "additional operations")

Much more lightweight than other defraggers out there, does what its supposed to, comes in x64 and x86

I may actually buy it after the trial!

I shall give this a go! But I also recommend JKDefrag for a small efficient defragger. ;)

I have that as a portable tool - but will be replacing if this puran can run unlocked on a usb pen!

Thats how impressed I am - it removes gaps to prevent reoccurance of fragmentation (to a degree) and then optimises the file location based on usage

I used to use perfectdisk btw - until it became bloated/nero'd/norton'd

Whats the world coming to with every program becoming fatter and heavier even for good specced pcs?

I used to use that.. but moved away from it for the same reason that Sam moved away from perfectdisk. It just felt bloated.

I do use O&O for Server machines.. but never ever a workstation. Same reason as above.

It felt bloated too before but then they did a full overhaul on the interface and such and it is refreshing.
