We're all still waiting for the hammer to fall!

Start the morning with a bit of Queen. Thats what I always say. Hang on a mo, that kinda came out wrong. Anyway I was doing my usual morning rounds when I spotted this little snippet about AMD's new 64bit kludge 'Hammer' at El Reg.

Hammer will come in 2-way, 4-way and 8-way configurations, although it's primed as the long-term single-CPU successor to Athlon XP too. AMD used to call the 1 and 2-way version ClawHammer

ClawHammer, SledgeHammer, Jan Hammer? (He's the guy who did the miami vice theme)
