Thread: quad-core FSB

    Default quad-core FSB

    I was wondering if anyone has any insight into Intel creating an upgrade to their quad-core series of processors. When they created the Pentium D dual core using the FSB for communication, they were incredibly slow, but by creating the shared L2 cache for communication, they went around any latency problems. The quad core relies on FSB for communication between dies and therefore the speed increases are not as huge relative to what you would expect (an overclocked E6700 does almost as good in many tests).
    Does anyone know of any roadmap, news, 'insider knowledge' of Intel creating a new communication route instead of the FSB which would speed up the latency issues with the new quad cores? Coz i really dont want to fork out several hundred pounds for a new quad core (which would last me a few years, to have a better version of the same model come out soon. im willing to wait even up to a year for the better version!

    cheers for any help,

    Just realised this might be better in the rumours/speculation area. apologies.
