It's not often that I reply to threads, but the opinion of Mother Merrill is one that I will speak of. I used to be a financial advisor with ML and know what I speak of.

What helpful tidbits. I now know more about salt than I care to. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.

[QB]Like some others posted the capital investment necessary to build a cutting edge fabrication facility for high end semiconductors today is beyond the reach of any small company. Therefore the only companies with the capability to produce high end CPUs are already in existance.
I think it is safe to say that this comment is correct, unless you factor in government involvement. Just look at the jetliner industry and...
Here's something to think about...
nvidia states that their next video card is going to be totally extensible and SIMD based.
Doesn't this suddenly allow Apple to use any PPC chip sans AltiVec since those functions can now be offloaded to the uber-SIMD nvidia card? Obviously this would bring IBM back into focus... what about some consumerr variant of Power4. what about AMD? What about anyone?
