Intel go core crazy!

Intel has announced that their 4 (quad)-core processors will be ready to ship this fall.

AND they've apparently built a prototype of a processor with 80 cores that can perform a trillion floating point operations per second!! WOAH!

I just wish I understood a damned syllable of what that means. But hey, it sounds whacky enough to me!

In the mean time Intel also plan to launch a new mobile platform next year called Santa Rosa proving that Otellini is of Italian origin and I guess Catholic to boot. Well that's nice. What it means for you and me is that laptops should boot faster. Finally.

Hey at least I got that.
