Intel has finally stepped away from Netburst and its about time too. In the beginning it was clear that Pentium 4's architecture wasn't going to be the ultimate in CPU technology - if a 1.3GHz clocked Pentium 3 could beat it in 90% of benchmarks, AMD's K7 technology was going to be able to kill it, and it did.
Now Intel has finally gotten the idea that just because you have a higher clocked processor doesn't mean you are going to win the benchmarks, especially if the architecture driving this can't keep up with the demands.
Core Architecture is just what the PC doctor ordered, and if this could have been done instead of the Netburst architecture, AMD might not have the market share it does today.
Overall we have seen that Core Duo for mobile has proven to produce the numbers, and Core 2 for the desktop offers great performance in applications and games - it does seem like it is Intel's day to shine. If Intel's trends of adding in further additions down the line still manifests on Core Architecture we are bound to see some interesting times for the future of Core.
