It looks like two big fish are fighting for the title of Dual-Core, but it looks like this is going to be a tough battle for AMD, and Intel. However, this is none of my concern because for me, this two companies are really a top-notch when it comes to computer devices.

Eventually, I wouldn’t let my valued readers down so I have decided to conduct some research about this, and below are some spoiler information that I happened to find from Vaultnetworks about the dual-core devices.

AMD Dual-Core Opteron

AMD company has always been cherished by many because of their top performance computer devices. They may seem to be the underdog when compared to Intel but surely AMD knows a thing or two to pull out some sleeves of their own. It was under two years ago when AMD has released Athlon MP unfortunately the life of the CPU was taken down because of the significant performance leadership of Intel’s brand new Xeon. Surprisingly, AMD has stood up once again with the release of AMD Dual-COre Opteron that far exceeded Intel Xeon.

Highlight Features of AMD Dual-Core Opteron

    Integrated DDR Memory Controller – Each of the two processor cores can process four instructions per clock cycle.
    AMD HyperTransport Technology – HyperTransport technology is a high-speed, low-latency, point-to-point link designed to increase the communication speed between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment by up to 48 times faster than some existing technologies.
    AMD Virtualization – By using VMware virtual infrastructure software on AMD Opteron processor-based servers, enterprises can significantly increase the number of virtual machines on a single physical system.

Intel Dual-Core Xeon

Due to the incident, Intel has developed a Dual-Core for the Intel Xeon, and below are its highlight features:

    Intel Smart Memory Access – The enhanced data prefetch mechanism reduces the idling time of the processor execution pipeline.
    Intel Advanced Smart Cache – Intellectual L2 cache is shared between the two processor cores depending on their load at a given moment. Moreover, the shared L2 cache speeds up data transfer rates between the cores and reduces the front side bus workload, because no data needs to be transferred via the system memory anymore.
    Intel Advanced Media Boost – The processor works faster with SSE3 instructions because it can perform the binary operations with 128-bit SSE registers within one clock cycle.
    Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) – This virtualization technology allows modeling the work of several virtual platforms on a single hardware system.
