Sorry about before fellas. Infomatic is just being so close-minded and disrespectful! I thought I'd tell him what's on many of our minds already. Info the link you had about conroe says FLANKER right in it. It was A LITTLE OBVIOUS!!!
I didn't mean to get this so off-topic. Conroe will be out in soon enough and we will all have our answers. For now I say we stick to facts ( "quantifiable" statements) AND respected speculation? I mean this is discussion is it not?
RHT though...How is the gaming scene reacting to the DC's though? It def takes a joint operation between the GPU and PCU to make it a sucess. It seems that DC gaming should be paired with SLI. That's why DC gaming wasn't so appealing to gamers at first. They saw the benches and didn't realize WHAT was happening. BOTTLENECKING.
If the market opts for DC threading, then RHT might be a lost cause. Like said before it should have been released with the intro of DC. Both technologies in one chip, being exposed at the same time.
Maybe it's too late. Maybe DC gaming has already honed in on the same performance.
