AMD talks about Agena K10
Ten years in the making
AMD has been releasing more tid-bits about its Agena, desktop quad-core processor.
According to TGDaily, Agena, might enable the high-powered consumer applications the IT industry promised ten years ago.
AMD showed its Agena FX quad-core processor, running in tandem with ATI R600 graphics cards as well as DDR2-1066 memory in two test systems.
Apparently there was a single-socket “Hammerhead” quad-core Agena FX system as well as a “Wahoo” dual-socket eight-core system.
AMD’s stream processor was also on show. AMD showed one rendering, movement recognition and physics, and the other doing face recognition.
TGDaily said that both were clearly in an early stage. However they did show off the advantage of a GPU that can handle massively parallel tasks.
