Core is Back!
While we continure to hear more and more about the future of Intel's CPUs, AMD have not been as open. Without any recent leaks, press releases or even slight speculation, all us enthusiasts are left to do is wonder.
Now AMD are rising out of the woodwork saying, CORE is back! There is no doubt that AMD are Talking about a New CPU, but before we discuss this, lets have a look at AMD's Prologue.
All the video says is this;
"In your PC, applications battle for resources. While powerful CORE hardware fights to maintain the balance. But the war never ends. And the applications only get stronger. Battles may be lost. But heroes will EVOLVE. CORE IS BACK!"
This video could mean many things, AMD could be working on a new CORE architecture, abandoning the Bulldozer arc of CPUs entirely. This could be true with the total lack of talk regarding newer iterations of Bulldozer past Excavator. The focus on the word CORE also suggests a move from AMD's "modular" design to a new AMD "CORE" architecture
That route is probably not what this trailer is referring too given that AMD said "EVOLUTION", implying that it is based on what came before. So this video is likely referring to their upcoming Carrizo APUs, but the future beyond that remains a total mystery.
The term "CORE IS BACK" suggests a large gain in performance from AMD, while this could just be marketing hype. I hope AMD can pull enough core performance to return to higher end competitiveness, because we desperately crave it.
Remember guys this video is marketed as a prologue and more information is coming. You can expect us at OC3D to continue to deliver on this story as it develops.
