I will get to the clock cycles, im really suprised that no one has chimed in yet to explain in depth what im getting towards.
System Bus Technology HyperTransport technology up to 2000MHz
Front Side Bus @ 800 MHz,
Integrated DDR Memory Controller (MCT) 64-bit + 8-bit ECC
PC3200, PC 2700, PC 2100, or PC1600 128-bit + 16-bit ECC
unbuffered PC3200, PC 2700,
PC 2100, or PC1600
Discrete logic device on motherboard
Integrated Northbridge Yes,
128-bit data path @ CPU core frequency
Discrete logic device on motherboard,
64-bit data path @ 200MHz
I dont know if i have the energy to filter through some of this right now, its 1:20 and i have class at 10, so i may just go to bed. If i do, ill be sure to pick up where i left off tomorrow.
AMD still believes very much in the capability of the CPU to process work and an efficient CPU at lower clock speeds can still do the same amount of work as compared to one that operates at higher clock speeds.
the Athlon 64 core and owes much of its success to its shorter pipeline, which allows it to do more work per clock cycle.
its integrated dual-channel memory controller and the built-in HyperTransport link that reduces the I/O latency of the processor.
If you dont know what I/O they are talking about, or the role it plays, you should read up. I/O addresses are numbers assigned to hardware devices that software uses to send a command to a device. Obviously on the address bus. Plays a pretty big part.
Intel clearly derived its 64-bit architecture by reading AMD's pre-release documentation for AMD64 and by testing AMD64 processors," Tom Halfhill, a senior editor with In-Stat/MDR's Microprocessor Report said in a statement.
Memory-addressing schemes and many other architectural features, such as data-addressing modes, context-switching behavior, interrupt handling, and support for existing 16- and 32-bit x86 execution modes were also compared. In every case, Intel had patterned its 64-bit x86 architecture after AMD64 in almost every detail.
This to me is marginaly hilarious. I could go on for hours....but i wont right now. Maybe later.
I would love an Intel fan to come in here and put me in my place, but you better know your stuff......
