Taylor vs. Yonah, not Merom! Bulldozer vs. Merom!

AMD seems to be playing catch-up with Intel. Apparently the Taylor chip is a response to Intel’s Yonah chip. The latest Intel chip, the Core 2 Duo is codenamed, Merom. This article explains AMD’s reaction to the Core 2 Duo:

“Response to Merom

Unfortunately, AMD will not be able to immediately match the performance of Intel’s next generation Core 2 Duo mobile processor, codenamed Merom. Instead, AMD will be focusing on the mainstream market, where performance is not a major issue. AMD maintains that Turion 64 X2 will still hold advantages in platform design at a value.

According to industry insiders, AMD’s response to Merom, codenamed Bulldozer, won’t appear until 1H 2007.”

Gravity Hill?

Where is Gravity Hill?

According to Roadside America, the gravity hill in Mooresville, Indiana is definitely on Keller Hill Road off SR42. I have been there around ten times. I will tell everyone right now that the hill is NOT marked at all. All I can say is you will just have to try the hills. It is approx. a mile in on the road. If you are going away from SR42 it is kind of down in a valley just before a rather large hill and there is a house on the left side and just some trees on the right.
