    Amd "Shanghai" 12 cores

    The code name for the upcoming 12 cores cpu from amd will be named Shanghai. It will be based on 45 nanometer.

    But will 12 cores really be necessary for small/medium websites? not to mention the big ones?

    check the rest of the news here http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=11531

    Wow!

    CPU cores seem to be going the way of disposable razor blades.

    The more cores, the better ... Think virtualization.

    but even with so many cores is it really necessary to have that many?
    most common ppl use several servers to balance the the server load.

    Virtualization is the future. Why have many physical servers if you can use the most of your server through virtualization. You can sub-divide your server into 12 virtual servers and it will perform nicely.

    If I am not mistaken, I have seen Intel's roadmap where it shows 100 cores per CPU within a decade, and that was at least 1-2 years ago.

    Well this is no news to anyone. 4 years ago I though having a 600GB HDD was all I ever would need. Now I have more than that and I still don't think is enough

    Then I would assume you have something like this in place.

    I'm still seeing harddrives as the core bottleneck. They can keep layering on cores but I don't think it'll help too much.

    For me, the main bottle necks are bandwidth, cpu and my programming time. Having to parallelize some processes will be hard, but it's going to be the only way to speed them up.

    Those that can be parallelizable are usually easy, as in embarrassingly parallel. Not many people parallelize tasks (outside of academia) that are not easy to do so.

    Either way, concurrency is really what they're after with these multicore processors. If it's easy to fork a process, it's easy to thread one.

    How much does it cost?
