There will be a 16 core AM4 part when it is time, the part exists in ES.
3900x is already a double 8core chiplet, likely with 2 cores per chiplet disabled. So I hightly doubt 16 is not possible. Fact that board developers all have early samples of em kinda removes an doubt. Pre computex it was said they would hold off on the 16core/announcing until Q3. Looks true so far.
Only seems like yesterday when we were on single cores.
if yesterday was 18 years ago.
I still think the 486 DX2 was the best processor ever made, simply because of what it made possible.
Those were good times, and nothing has really changed since.
Ray tracing will be the next evolution.
In 2005, vast majority of users were still on single cores (AMD socket 939, venice, san diego, etc, and Intel Pentium 4 (1 core, 2ht). The first mainstream dual cores were released in 2005 (Athlon 64 x2, Pentium D). Still remember the days here in this forum and what the vast majority of users were on. Only with C2D in 2006, everyone began to switch to dual cores. I recall all the excitement in early 2006 when the first C2D performance leaks came out, and a lot of folk held off their upgrades (incl me) until its release in early summer that year. So basically, 14 years when dual cores first began to appear.
Well, It is 2019, many users here nowdays were born in the early 2000's.
2005 to them sounds like talking about the 70's sounds to me
Yeah.. I know..
stop it. i miss OCing my 466 celeron.
Or ocing my Opteron 144 over 1100 MHz to be better than the FX57 for pennies
