Intel has come out with the Core 2 Duo range of processors and that has me thinking is it possible to custom make more than two processors? What kind of modifications would we have to do in the motherboard? Would those motherboard modifications be possible outside the factory, I mean could those modifications be made by someone other than Intel? What about cooling?
If you have any idea about my queries please do share.
most probably cannot be done at home with normal everyday tools due to the microscopic size of each component. beside XP Pro support only 1 dual core HT (2x2 cpus).
Heh, with linux you can connect many machiens together, so you can make them work together as a supercomputer. Insane stuff. I read about it, but never tried this myself.
You cannot make a custom make processor at home. You need micro logic circuit technology and the equipment to do it. I am pretty sure you cannot afford it.
Not to mention you would have to completely restructure the NB...
Trust me, if the average dude, or even a hardcore computer dude could do something like this, companies would do it all the time to get much better performance on servers that can utilize the extra cores.
Yeah if you want more CPUs on one mobo, you have to go with a server mobo. And those cost big bucks. We will get the multiCPUs just wait. Or you can go the mac side. My Father just got his mac duel cpu duel cores running at 2.6Ghz or so. Conbined power of 10 Ghz or so!
My brother got the 805 Pentene D 2.4 over clocked to Duel Core 3.5Ghz!! so 7Ghz power.
a quick question on the topic:
Are Core 2 Duos substantially faster then Core Duos?
Core 2 Duo is a better architechure. Therefore, they are much faster...
Yes the new Core 2 Duos are just sweet on speed. Check out tomshardware for actual benchmarks for all the CPUS
