I have a computer with the core duo, but heard thru the grapevine that there is a new quad-core coming out by the end of this year. I think that INTEL is bringing it out, and perhaps Turion. Have any of you heard about this, and is this something that is going to be a lot better than the DUO? I just don't want to end up with a computer that is outdated and slow compared to all of them. How can it get any better than the DUO?

yes toolfan. intel will be launching its quad-core processor soon and its probably slated to be launced this year end. as the name suggests the quad core processor combines 4 processor powers into one. its will be the worlds fastest processor when it will be launched . intel has also developed a game by the name anam blake for the quad core processor which is the highest graphical intensive game till date. a video of quad core and its game is uploaded on you tube. check for yourself.

Yes, i was surfing down the web and once i entered the Dell website and saw that they have this quad-core. and it is like as if you have two core duo in the same computer. The speed and quality of the computer might be amazing. if you check out the dell website will find out more stuff about it. but it's still really expensive. it's such a new technology for consumers, because for business there is already 8 core and more. Regrets,

I heard about the hype around quad-core too. That was all over the news just after dual-core came out. As to when it will come out remains unknown, but I don't think it'll be that soon since market penetration of dual-core isn't that high yet. Probably next year before they start mass-production of quad-cores. And that only for server chips. Of course quad-core packs a much more powerful punch and uses less power than dual-core. It'll be the peak of computer processing technology until they come out with eight-core chips.
