Secondly, Hammer will feature not just high-speed, but super high-speed HyperTransport bus. The MCT won't load it with the work with memory, as the controller is built into the core. The built-in MCT will also reduce to the minimum the latency level of the CPU-memory subsystem. Thirdly, Hammer is going to support fully SSE2, so Pentium 4 is deprived of that advantage, too. Moreover, Hammer will feature the strongest FPU inherited from Athlon (Pentium 4 FPU cannot compete with it at all) and its main trump will definitely be 64bit instructions.
