Intel says no dual core miracle compiler ahead@ 2005/04/06
Intel is one of the largest companies in the world and when it sets its mind to something, watch out. One problem with being so big, however, is that changes come slowly especially on something so entrenched as 'Netburst' and deep pipelines. If a paradigm shift is required, everyone wonders why the rank and file did not point out that the emperor had no clothes.
It seems the dual core processor is going to mean very little to most people, and marginally more to few in the near future. Expect a gazillion dollars spent on marketing, however, to convince Joe Public of the wonderful goodness of the new processors. And I thought we were done with the Blue Men.
