IDF 2007:  Low K is cooler and lowers the clocks


AMD is Low K wile Intel said that its Hafnium transistors will be high K. Intel knows that AMD's approach with Low K actually means that the chip can be up to 30 percent cooler but at the same time it brings the other problems where you get limited with the clock speeds.


This is what happened to early Barcelona samples, but it looks like AMD overcame the problem with the recent Revision 2 of the core and the Rev 2F the production one but it still has to settle to much lower clocks with its 65 nanometre part.


Well AMD chose what it believes was the right thing and got very delayed at the end.
