I use a dual core processor, the speed satisfies me and i feel contented with it, however the new quad core is faster according to a friend who just bought one. When i first used a computer years ago back in college, it was still that DOS based 256. Now computers develop very quickly and what you seem to be the latest model will not be latest anymore after a few months. I wonder how fast will the next processor be, will it be 8 or 16 core processor? What do yopu think?

Is it matter? I mean faster cpu? If it does then the only threshold would be as many core as future technology allow to be in single cpu. 64 core, less heat, smaller and the best part - cheaper than current cpu? Why not if it possible in the future. btw I'd like to live long enought to see 17 core cpu... unlikely, huh? I bet it would makes me feel younger just by using it... If I make a mistake, have mercy to forgive me.

well for someone like me, I like to try new things out, I learn by experiencing things. A faster CPU that is equipped for multitasking is an ideal computer for me who likes to work on many things at the same time. With the present trend of technology, I know that both of us will live to see the development of these multi core processors. hopefully we will also use these very nice innovations that humans can think of and make.

well double core processor still worksfine with me, but i think the next development will be more on the graphics and other supporting multimedia application,human interface device eg. (storage, keybord, adn soon)

oh i see, do you have any comment about the performance of quad core as compared to the dual core which is common today?

The multicore processors seem to be the way of the near future. It would also be nice if the price would drop and size increase of the OLED displays, they are supposed to be great to look at. The problem of increasing the capacity of computers seems to be that the software seems to bloat to the point of filling the available capacity and the problems inherent in the windows operating system still seem to be there.

well production costs for this technologies goes down as time goes by, so will its price
