In this second episode of the Dan & David Show, we discuss the news from Intel's Developer Forum, including the new dual core, power chips due next year that it wants to crush AMD with and the VIIV sticker (think Centrino) that Intel wants to stick on viiv.jpgentertainment PCs that use specific Intel parts and software, as well as Microsoft Media Center Edition. Of course, a show can't go by without talking about Google, and I share my experiences with the freshly minted Google Talk, and we ruminate on whether Google is a new Microsoft, salivating over annexing new software territory, or just doing what comes naturally for an engineering-focused company born of the Web. David also rants about cellular carriers who are turning off smartphone features. All this and more in about 10 minutes of crisp audio that can be delivered directly to your desktop or MP3 player if you're subscribed to our podcasts (See ZDNet’s podcasts: How to tune in), or if you want you can just download  the MP3.  Let us know what you think.

  • INTEL future does not look good

    Some German site published benchmarks on the Yonah dual core chip and Sossaman dual core server chip. The result is disappointing. The 2GHZ Yonah (overclocked) with 2MB cache is 20% slower than Athlon 64 X2 3800+ with 512KB cache.

    It takes 2 dual core sossamans (total 4 cores) to beat one Athlon 64 X2 4800+ (2 cores).

    Also sossaman server chip does not have 64 bit support.

    • P4 is badly designed

      I remember reading an article on Toms Hardware Page about the P4. The design is VERY sub-optimal and InHell relied on clock speed upticks to increase the performance. Now that the clock is STUCK at 3.8 Ghz, those design flaws are preventing them from challenging the Athlon design (MUCH better). Now ALL AMD needs to do is stay ahead with more cores, and P4 will NEVER, EVER catch up.

    I have watched one episode of The News Show with John Soat and I listened to your podcast today. Although I liked seeing the people who were talking on The News Show, especially since I have been reading some of their articles for years and years, I found every minute of your podcast on target with my interests.
    Keep up the good work.
    Thanks,
    Alan
