I have beeen reading tech reports about the 20005 release of AMD dual-core processors. Some of them have mention their inclusion into laptops. What is the reality of AMD dual-core processors actually goign into laptops. It seems to me like the manuf process, thermal constraints, and cost may be prohibitive no matter how great the performance increase is. What do you think and do you expect this to be the norm as mobile technologies seem to be expanding of late exponentially? (to wit: mobile pci-e, propossed HDs of 100 GB for notebooks, better graphics ATI Axiom/nVidia MXM). Thanks.

According to the latest official Roadmap' ">http://www.amd.com/us-en/Proce.../0,,30_118_608,00.html, dual-core processors for the Server/Workstation(Opteron) and High-end/Enthusiast Desktop(Athlon 64 FX) platforms are slated for introduction in the 2nd half of 2005.

Before you will ever see mobile dual-core parts, this technology would have to be available in the mainstream desktop segment which probably isn't going to happen before the 1st half of 2006(in my opinion).

Right now, as well as in the forseeable future, a dual-CPU or dual-core CPU setup wouldn't make much sense for a Laptop/Notebook anyways - virtually none of your typical applications run on a Laptop(including games) would benefit that much from dual-processors or a dual-core processor...Laptops aren't (and couldn't be) used for servers or high-end workstations.

Sometime in the future, there will probably be dual-core parts even for Laptops, but i wouldn't expect it anytime soon...
