I was thinking about this the other day (yes, I do lead a dull life), and I was wondering two things.
1. Will Intel and AMD (as the larger cpu producers) continue to create single core processors?
2. And how long will dual core processors be around for, since quad core are already on the horizon.
Also, while I think about it, having an intel socketed motherboard (the kind that P4, celeron, and the pentium D cpus use, 755 Ithink) what would I have to find out about my motherboard in order to look at upgrading to possibly a P4 (highest possible one, and then overclocking time!) or Pentium D?
