    New Intel Destroys AMD

    Aw :) Well suffice it to say then, that such discussion today, is no different then discussions I had participated in the January preceding the launch of Athlon... If it was reasonable for us to discuss that (and on Intel's own forums nonetheless); it's certainly just as fair for people to...

    New Intel Destroys AMD

    It's all good... And wrt AMD, many of us had done little different when the Athlon was not yet released. I remember sitting on the Intel developer forums in the late 1990s, and mentioning Athlon and what was slate... Then there were those who were like "this is Intel, how could a half pint...

    Intel Confirms End of Hyperthreading

    There are different, and I imagine that Intel had gotten the idea for HT from Digital's SMT or simultanious multithreading, which was slated for the EV8 or 21464... The doc doesn't exist anymore at the same links, but in one from Digital, it gave direct comparisons to IA-64, why they did what...

    SLI and CrossFire, Pushing Power Supplies To The Limit

    That might not be the best example; because public utilities are almost certainly going to have segments in laying the power out. In fact, there's already 2, as 220-volts is what comes into a modern house (some older homes only got a 110-volt line), which itself gets broken down to multiple...

    Blu-Ray Disc

    Well, talking about increasing either to 9 layers might be speculation at this point, especially when we don't know what the rival can be increased to. However, it appears that HD DVD has seen a capacity increase of late. How many more it could see, would itself be speculation as well...

    Quantum computer solves problem, without running

    Ya know, speaking of particle physics, some people might find this interesting. There are of course some differences wrt quantum physics vs. the world of Newtonian physics we're more accustomed to dealing with. Some of these result in some propositions, which are well different. I had seen...

    Blu-Ray Disc

    Actually, HD DVD uses the same sort of blue-violet laser that Blu Ray does. And though it holds 25 GB vs. 15 GB of data, this doesn't in and of itself mean that it would be the better medium for movies. The sort of video compression each uses, can also effect the actual capacity one gets on...

    SLI and CrossFire, Pushing Power Supplies To The Limit

    Well, the effect of running resistors in parallel, vs. running them in series is different. It would not be beyond reason that something could be extrapolated from this, to apply to the resistence in the wire itself, albeit the connectors are end points...

    x3 new trailer

    If someone's ready to run for the WMD next, it might be time to go a runnin out the door :laugh: Yeah, I'm likely to see this when it comes out...

    wireless security ?

    As to your hard drive, no the file will not show up there... Most NICs don't run in permiscuous mode, so they'll only get the traffic that is addressed to them. OK, I haven't messed with wireless in the specific, but I imagine that with some of the routing, there is a bit of a commonality...

    New Intel Destroys AMD

    Disregard what I formerly said about not seeing how A64 would perform with actual 64-bit software support; because from what I'm finding out and hearing, Conroe will be a 64-bit CPU. So any benefit AMD will see wrt this, Intel will see also. But besides that, this is even better news for the...

    Obeying the Law is Dangerous

    NYC has a fairly built up subway system... Of course there's also graffiti, and criminals to deal with on the subways (aka muggers). Elsewhere in the country, this isn't the same thing however. There's also (outside of the north East Coast), large areas of country in this country... This...

    New Intel Destroys AMD

    I've seen mention to this, and am left with the impression that a next gen Intel part is being compared to the current gen AMD part. Of course we don't know what the next gen AMD part will be, what it will be capable of, how it will stack up, etc... Time will tell. In the end, it's good for...

    Counter Strike Source Clan

    Don't feel bad, Sazar's probably been playing for quite some time... So there's been a bit of catching up to do. It can all come down to practice making one better and all. Now, I do think that when I do manage to get this game, should we all join up with each other, he might end up rather...

    Obeying the Law is Dangerous

    Part of it is how silly some beuracrats can be about road repairs however... Two things come to mind here: - When I lived in Maine, the stupid beuracrats who didn't do much about the roads for a long time (as they fell apart); got the "bright idea" to first resrface the road. Only after they...
