Velocity Micro Announces Quad-core Workstations

Along with other news coming out of the Intel Developer Forum today, Velocity Micro unveiled its updated ProMagix W160 workstation with Intel’s upcoming quad-core processor (code-named “Kentsfield”). What does this mean to the average consumer? Not a whole lot. But if you’re a day trader with massive spreadsheets and you like to listen to music, download pirated movies, and game all at the same time, four processing cores on a single die will come in real handy.
