75% of shipments expected to be dual core in 18 months

Intel will be pushing their dual-core processors very hard as soon as they hit the ground - InformationWeek is reporting that 75% of Intel's processors will be dual core by the end of 2006.

Intel has more than 15 dual- and multicore projects under way.

...

The Pentium Extreme Edition will include the use of two hyperthreads on each core, for a total of four hyperthreads in the processor. The hyperthreads will allow for running multiple instructions simultaneously. The Pentium D will not have hyperthreading initially.

The article goes on to say that Intel expects that there will be up to eight HyperThreads by the end of the decade so it looks like it still has an important role even with the introduction of dual cores.?Dual cores should be great for most users especially with Intel's vision of the digital living room since there will be a lot of independent threads running simultaneously.?More murky is the advantage for gamers.?I remember the Quake 3 days and how it supported SMP.?Well, with my pair of Celerons on the BP6, enabling SMP support actually dropped framerates.?More telling is probably the silence amongst developers on the topic.?It will be interesting to see what kind of usage that SMP will get in the upcoming year.?
