Smooth Remember, AMD designed the Hammer to be dual core from the beginning. AMD has demonstrated the ability to make ALL the server chips the world needs TODAY (without Fab 36). Made over 1 million hammers last quarter (not all went into servers, but they could have). Dual core Hammer next year is about the same size as single core hammer this year. AMD has a 90 nm process and design that uses LESS power than their 130 nm process and design. This is Intel's worst nightmare.
