When Yonah comes out. It'll have em64t, hyperthreadung, and be dual-core. I'm waiting on that.

The Yonah details became clear with Apple's move.

I thought Yonah was just going be a dual core chip without 64 bit capabilities. The chips coming right after Yonah (1Q of 2006) are supposed to have 64 bit capability I think. Correct me if I'm wrong...

In reply to: Yonah...

The pressure is definitely set to "high" for EM64T to be in that release. I'd read this to go either way, but the bottomline is my longterm plan is hang in there with my older AMD 64-bitter till this arrives.
