AMD's Hammer processor will only be released towards the end of the year, but especially recently there is a lot of noise around it, whether it is The memory controller His or In chipsets Many will come out to meet him.
By all this you can definitely feel that this is a processor that will change the balance of power between Intel and AMD and if you need further proof of it, it is before you.
Wall Street Financial Weekly published an estimate today that the Hammer processor could give AMD a multi-year gap over Intel, which is invaluable for AMD.
According to the magazine, AMD's advantage lies precisely in Intel and its Itanium processor (which competes with Hammer) that operates on 64 bit only and does not support backward compatibility.
The Hammer processor (or, more correctly, its server version called Opteron and released at the beginning of 2003) has full backwards compatibility and knows how to work with 32 bit software, which is much more common than 64 bit software and therefore the use of the Hammer processor will be much more common because people Will not need to upgrade their entire system (in terms of software, targeting) to fit Itanium.
This is expected to give AMD a huge jump and a strong bite in Intel's market share…
