AMD Phenom

posted in Hardware, IT News |

amdp.PNGUntil now it’s been called Barcelona or Agena, but AMD have finally announced the official name of their latest processor: Phenom. AMD hasn’t updated us on other details for Phenom; either AMD is doing its best to hide a rough ramp of Phenom or it’s sitting on a very powerful weapon to combat Intel with, and we can’t get any indication of which it is. The core is an evolution of the current K8 architecture, with a lot of attention placed on SSE performance and other general IPC enhancements. Phenom will also be the first monolithic quad-core x86 processor to hit the market.
