    Ahh fudzilla, the place that states the obvious on everything. And gets that wrong.
    Fuad Abazovic is quite possibly one of the worst editors that ive seen on-line. He didnt even know what the most basic things like STR were, but managed to get articles run about how he will investigate it.

    Take anything you read at Fudzilla with a huge pinch of salt guys.

    "In 2003, AMD outlined the features for upcoming generations of microprocessors after K8 family of processors in various events and analyst meetings, including the Microprocessor Forum 2003 [6]), the outlined features to be deployed by the next-generation microprocessors are as follows:"

    If you remember back that far, Intel etc were on the MHz war, so imagining processors running at such speeds for what was then next-next, and next-next-next gen wasn't that far of a stretch.

    a bit further down the page..

    "However, as of 2006, some of the original outlined features had been abandoned, examples as the high processor clock speed due to thermal limitations"

    Which is what Intel found out with the death of the P4 line - you just couldn't push it any further - hence AMD's ethos of "work smarter, not faster" was adoped by evolving the Pentium M architecture into C2D etc.

    The document is merely setting up the events which lead to the "K10" architecture.

    Which you might have discovered if you'd bothered to read it properly.
