AMD Phenom (0 Comments) (link)
 Tuesday, 15-May-2007  04:40:10 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Not content with hogging the headlines with a new GPU family, AMD named their new CPU family today too: The AMD Phenom Processor. This is the "Barcelona" product family. With the true quad-core design offered by the upcoming AMD Phenom processors, cores communicate on the die rather than through a front side bus external to the processor - a bottleneck inherent in other products that are packaging two dual-core chips to form quad-core processors. Additionally, AMD’s Direct Connect Architecture on-chip ensures that all four cores have optimum access to the integrated memory controller and integrated HyperTransport links, so that performance scales well with the number of cores.

More info on DailyTech and Anandtech, with discussion in our AMD Hardware forum already.
