K10 quads will be up to 120W TDP
I heard that Intel's TDP is not actually their consumption at max load, but rather, Intel tries to base it on what it thinks is 'average' load
and it's also not including the northbridge (All of K8 and K10's northbridge functions are on the CPU)

Intel's CPU's really need more cache, since they don't have an onboard memory controller. They can't just pull data from RAM quickly like K8 and K10, so they have to have something more local.

But then, the CPU is always going to have to retrieve data from memory anyway.

With an onboard memory controller, even if a K8 or K10 had 12MB L2 cache, it wouldn't benefit the CPU much anyway.

Then there's also the vastly different ways the K8, K10 and Core 2's get instructions to the core.

I don't see that happening anytime soon, with today's programmers.

8 Core CPU seems like it won't be coming anytime soon. Maybe in 2030 or something. :laughing:

Or perhaps they will start taking a new approach all together, just like how they went from 3GHz P4 single cores to dual cores, so instead of piling on more cores (like they were piling on higher frequencies) they go in a different direction.

Whats with the naming system???

It seems odd that

E5420 > E6420

Are the desktop versions going to be like this also?
