Intel is at it again…

Kentsfield the new quad core processor will be out just in time for Christmas (ETA 11/24). Feel free to send me one. I am very suprised it is coming out shortly after the Core 2 Duo. With the release of the Core 2 Duo and the Core 2 Quadro I think Intel will be well ahead of AMD once again. First to the market does make the difference. The Core 2 Quadro (Kentsfield) looks like it is going to be a great chip. Here are the specs:

Socket 775
Process 65nm
Clock Speed 2.66Ghz
Front Side Bus 1066Mhz
L1 Cache 64KB + 64KB
L2 Cache 2 X 4MB

I don’t know about you but I can’t wait. I will not drop the $1,100 on the chip but when it gets down around the $600 range. I will really start thinking about it. I just can’t believe the times we are in. I remember my old 486 thinking that was the greatest thing. Now we have 4 very fast processors on one chip. Just Amazing…

I began programming in C++ when I was in college. Odd for a business major, but hey I am a Dork. After college I got a job as System Administrator. As a System Administrator I was in charge of web administration. My journey as a PHP web developer had begun. Since that time I have gained an in depth knowledge of CSS, Javascript, XML and MySQL. With changes and advances to technology I have also began learning AJAX. I started Blue Fire Development to do freelance work in my spare time.
