Hmm... 4 is quad, 6 is hexa, 8 is octo, 10 is deca. So would 16 core be hexadeca?

16 core... wow.

Wow, that could be neat. One core for FR, one for email, one for web stuff, one for Drudge, and twelve cores doing Windows Update and blue screens ;-)

Does the name indicate this processor is Halal?

I don’t think I’d want a processor that stops working five times each day to pray to Mecca.

16 cores is nonsense. They should learn what Amdahl's Law means.

What possible desktop operating system will really make use of 16 cores? You think Windows 8 is going to make use of 16 cores? Not in any meaningful way.

This is AMD's way of saying that Moore's Law has finally run out of gas.
