The fun began quite a while ago, you're just late to the party.

Yea, K8L looks promising, but Intel is hardly sitting around either. Nehalem architecture in 2008 (45nm), and Gesher in 2010 (32nm). Even before these, we have a Quad-Core 65nm processor. That also reinforces my point to all the AMD fanboys that we know about new CPUs many years in advance. AMD isn't going to pop up anything amazing in the next couple of months.

Frankly, though K8L with all it's Quad-Core Glory looks promising, Intel's got its own Quad-Cores coming out, so its not going to be a monopoly on the Quad-Core for AMD. The Kentsfield processor (65nm, 2007), based on the Nehalem architecture, has 4 cores and 2 x 4MB L2 cache. Compared to AMD's miniscule K8L caches, I see there being a genuine struggle in 2007. But until then, ah, blissful Conroe.

Thats not the one that everyone's talking about. That one's on Anandtech. Though most of the talk is coming from places like XtremeSystems Forums where people actually have Conroes and have overclocked them and have compared them to other processors from AMD.
