Register about the 80 core intel
Nice comment about 80 core Intel at the register:
Terry Shannon will be turning in his grave. All X86 processors are really Alpha chips now. Pity it took AMD and Intel 10 years to catch up. And it seems DEC was quite right when it introduced the Alpha processor and said it would be good until the year 2025.
In my opinion, the Alphacide was the baddest thing that happened to the computer industry. The computing industry would look a whole different now with it. PS: Now it´s up to Sun with Rock/Niagara/NiagaraII to bring some new concepts into computing.
